A number of health care programs require a residency in order to successfully graduate. There are three residency fields represented at Alberta Health Services (AHS): Pharmacy, Psychology and Medical.
Each field has its own requirements and will require coordination both through the post-secondary program and AHS. In addition, each residency may have unique requirements to apply for residency with AHS. Choose your section below to get started.
AHS offers nine positions in Canadian Hospital Pharmacy Residency Board accredited programs across the province. All four programs offer a variety of training and educational opportunities to help enhance the theories and skills developed in the pharmacy undergraduate programs. Successful completion of the residency program gives the equivalent of several years of experience due to the structured learning opportunities.
AHS offers positions in three pre-doctoral psychology residency programs: Pre-Doctoral Residency in Pediatric and Child Psychology, Calgary Clinical Psychology Residency and the Edmonton Consortium Clinical Psychology Residency. We offer a wide range of outstanding training experiences in assessment, treatment, and consultation with diverse client/patient populations. There are some rich opportunities to work as integral members of interdisciplinary teams.
Medical residencies are coordinated through the post secondary training programs; please connect directly with the program.
If you require a placement with a non-physician, please contact Medical Affairs directly to discuss the process, prerequisites and requirements.
