Clinical Immunology & Allergy Residency Program

How to Apply

Residents can be considered for training in Clinical Immunology and Allergy at McMaster University if they have completed at least three years of training in an approved Internal Medicine  or Pediatric  Residency Training Program. Residents who are unsure of their eligibility for our program should contact the Postgraduate Medical Education Program prior to contacting the Clinical Immunology and Allergy program.

Residents who are eligible for Ontario Ministry of Health-funded training positions must apply through the Canadian Residency Matching Service. Information about the application process can be obtained by visiting the McMaster Internal Medicine Residency Training Program website and CaRMS website. All other potential trainees, including those who graduated from non-Canadian medical schools, should contact the Postgraduate Medical Education Program for specific advice about their eligibility for training at McMaster University. Further information is available from The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario website.

Applications must include:

  • A minimum of three letters of reference including one from the resident’s core Internal Medicine or Pediatrics Program Director
  • Undergraduate and medical school transcripts
  • A personal letter
  • A curriculum vitae

Applicants who will not be funded by the Ontario Ministry of Health (e.g. international medical graduates, those requiring a work authorization permit) will also need to provide details about their sponsorship and demonstrate successful completion of the Medical Council of Canada Evaluating Examination.  Residents currently training outside of Canada or who are uncertain of their eligibility to train at McMaster, should review the requirements for training found at the Postgraduate Medical Education Program website. Applicants for non-Ontario Ministry of Health-funded positions should send their application package directly to the Postgraduate Medical Education Program office before September 1st to confirm training eligibility.
