Objectives of the fellowship

Fellows will be in charge of all clinical activities related to the specific field their fellowship covers. This includes, but is not be limited to, responsibility for pre-op and post-op care, teaching patients and their families etc. Fellows may have to be on call during nights and weekends. They will be also in charge of teaching students and residents.
English is the main working and teaching language, however a good knowledge of French is necessary to fully participate in the clinical work. Priority will be given to bilingual applicants.
A salary is available for this fellowship. The amount conforms to the scale proposed by the Quebec government for the Residents 6 category. Salary details must be discussed with the program director. It is important that non-Canadian fellows realize that McGill University registration fees of approximately $21,000 (2008) will be assumed by the program.
For fellowships of 1 and 2 years, the fellow will be authorized to take 4 weeks of vacation per year. Dates will have to be coordinated with the fellowship directors.
Fellows will be encouraged to participate in one national professional conference as well the American Urological Association (AUA) Annual Meeting. The department will underwrite the participant’s expenses, provided he (she) is an active participant in the meeting (speaking to a non-industry-sponsored forum).
Healthcare coverage for non-Canadian fellows
Fellows must obtain private healthcare insurance through the hospital. The Hospital’s Department of Human Resources must be informed four weeks in advance of the fellow’s scheduled arrival and provided with the completed insurance application forms and associated paperwork at that time. The necessary forms will be sent to the fellow as soon as his (her) acceptance is final.
Arrangements for the insurance must be finalized and coverage initiated in time for the fellow’s first day of work. The fellow’s immediate family members will also be covered.
