Infectious Diseases Postgraduate Program

The University of Ottawa Division of Infectious Diseases offers a two year training program in adult infectious diseases that is fully accredited by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. Trainees are exposed to the breadth and depth of clinical infectious diseases such as community and nosocomially acquired infections, infections in critically-ill patients, opportunistic infections in immunocompromised hosts including HIV and recipients of solid organ and hematological stem cell transplants. Dedicated ambulatory care clinics exist for viral hepatitis, tuberculosis, infections in returning travelers, and patients requiring home parenteral antibiotic therapy.

The program content fulfills the training requirements for eligibility to sit the Royal College Subspecialty Examination in Infectious Diseases. The Program focuses on equipping trainees with the necessary skills for an academic career that encompasses laboratory based research supervised by Facultyclinician-scientists. However, the six months of elective rotations allow sufficient flexibility that permit trainees to tailor their training to suit their own career pathway.
