The University of Manitoba postgraduate training program in Endocrinology and Metabolism is a two-year Royal College accredited program in adult endocrinology available to individuals who have already completed approved training in Internal Medicine. Opportunities exist for further basic research training for interested individuals.

The program is designed to provide the trainee with a sufficient knowledge base in endocrine and metabolic disorders and the related basic sciences to function capably in a consultant capacity in a community or academic setting.

The first year of the program is clinically oriented. Reflecting the predominantly outpatient nature of the practice of endocrinology, emphasis is placed on experience in the ambulatory care setting. Through clinics at the University of Manitoba’s two major tertiary care centres, the Health Sciences Centre and St. Boniface Hospital, as well as the Grace Hospital, a community teaching hospital, trainees are exposed to a wide variety of clinical problems in diabetes and general endocrinology as well as participating in specialized lipid, diabetic foot, osteoporosis and thyroid cancer clinics. Both sites also have an active inpatient consultation service. Additional rotations provide a focused exposure to paediatric endocrinology, reproductive endocrinology, community endocrinology and the clinical endocrine laboratory. A longitudinal resident’s clinic takes place throughout both years, allowing trainees to gain experience in ongoing patient management.

Composition of the second year is flexible depending on the needs, interests, and career path of the individual. Trainees are strongly encouraged to do a minimum of six months, and up to twelve months in basic or clinical research. A biostatistics course is undertaken by all trainees. A variety of elective rotations can be arranged in consultation with the program director.

The postgraduate training program in Endocrinology and Metabolism at the University of Manitoba is characterized by close linkages and integration with the departments of medicine, paediatrics, obstetrics and gynaecology, laboratory medicine, physiology and anatomy. Academic activities include a postgraduate endocrinology seminar series for subspecialty trainees, weekly city wide endocrine rounds and journal club, in which trainees participate, thyroid cancer conference rounds, nuclear medicine and Neuroradiology rounds, and medical grand rounds. Visiting speakers are also scheduled throughout the year.

Objectives of the Program
