Application Deadline: January 25, 2013
The Department of Medicine at Women’s College Hospital invites applications for our fellowship in Women’s Health. This program is open to applicants with completed specialty training in Internal Medicine and its Subspecialties and licensed to practice in Ontario.
The program is intended to provide individuals trained in the fields of internal medicine with an opportunity for advanced training in a specialty area of women’s health (e.g. HIV and women, headache, osteoporosis, polycystic ovarian syndrome, cardiovascular women’s health, medical complications of cancer survivorship). The focus of the fellowship training experience is on the acquisition of skills and expertise in a specific area of medicine relevant to the health of women through the life course, with an emphasis on gaining a full understanding of how gender influences prevalence and incidence of the disease, and the clinical manifestations and outcomes of the disease, including a gender-based approach to evidence based medicine.
Two streams of training are available:
The fellow will, together with her/his academic mentor, develop a course of clinical study appropriate to the trainee’s academic interests. Completion of a project is recommended; the project might focus on issues of quality assurance, patient education, database development, outcome evaluation, etc.
The fellow will be encouraged to apply for Master’s level of training (with potential for PhD level training) in either Clinical Epidemiology and Health Care Research in the Dept. of Health Policy Management and Evaluation, or a Master’s degree in Education through the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, under the supervision of an academic mentor, with a view to assuming an academic faculty position at a teaching hospital as a clinician scientist or clinician educator, respectively. The focus of “research” undertaken in the context of this graduate degree will be in an area relevant to women’s health.
Attendance at weekly women's health and medical grand rounds will be expected, as will participation in medical clinical coverage after hours.
