With a catchment of 1.2 million, our select Calgary Zone EDs see over 300 thousand patient visits a year, with a wide breadth of patient presentation and high acuity. In Calgary, physicians and residents actively manage patients through their entire course of care, without stopping their management at the point of consultation. Our Emergency physicians and residents perform their own procedures, facilitate effective patient disposition and care for all aspects of our patients' presentations.

We are fortunate to maintain such a small training program with 4 FRCPC residents per year in a city of over a million people. We remain one of the smallest sites in Canada to ensure our trainees receive the best experience possible.
Calgary is a young, vibrant city with a ton of energy. It allows an exceptional lifestyle for residents, partners and families at an affordable cost. In addition to endless amazing restaurants, coffeeshops, music and arts, we are only a 45 minute drive to the Rockies.
