The Queen’s University Fellowship in Resuscitation and Reanimation is a one-year educational fellowship with an optional second year. It can be combined with a year of clinical emergency medicine (usually the 4th year of a 5 year residency), but applicants from other specialties who have an interest in resuscitation medicine and education are welcome.
Interested applicant must send the following to the program director by April 1, 2013:
- Letter of Intent: Maximum 2 pages outlining why you are interested in Resuscitation Medicine. Please take this opportunity to highlight the things that make you a good applicant and demonstrate your interest in teaching, simulation, and resuscitation medicine.
- Curriculum Vitae
- The contact information for three people who have agreed to act as references for you.
Residents who are currently enrolled in a Canadian Emergency Medicine residency must also include a letter of support from their program director.

The program, which runs from July 1 to June 30 each year, has been in existence since 2008. There are three main components of the curriculum: Resuscitation medicine, Simulation, and Leadership. Resuscitation Fellows work as part of the hospital critical care response team and as leaders of the hospital’s trauma team, have weekly teaching sessions, and help teach resuscitation skills to medical students, residents and attending physician’s in the Resuscitation Institute’s simulation lab. They will have rotations in intensive care and echocardiography, and will be required to complete an academic project. Fellow’s will also participate in the Emergency Medicine academic half-day, and will do shifts in the emergency department to maintain their emergency medicine skills.
For interested applicants there is the option of a second year, generally for more in-depth research or a masters in medical education.
