If a resident from your program is out of town for an out of province elective, prepare a letter stating the resident's name, PGYx level, name of training program, and that approval has been granted by the program, list the dates / period of the elective, and have the respective Postgraduate Program Director sign the letter.
Request for Observerships
Observerships, ie a person not currently registered with any university, as neither a medical student, or a medical resident, and who want to "shadow" a physician: Observerships are not licensable by CPSM, they cannot be registered with CMPA, and therefore are not accepted at the University of Manitoba.
