Clinician Scholar Program
The Clinician Scholar Program (CSP) was accredited by The College of Family Physicians of Canada in February 2011 and replaced the Family Medicine Research Fellowship Program.

For those without a research Masters degree, the CSP is a two year program (normally PGY3/PGY4) with the expectation that a relevant Masters research degree will be completed concurrently. Residents must devote 80% of their time to research activities and 20% to clinical care.

For those with a research Masters degree, the program is for one year. It is also possible to complete this as an integrated three year program beginning in PGY1, where upon completion, the resident will be eligible for certification in Family Medicine.
