If you have a medical degree and would like to complete a period of advanced training as a fellow (fellowship), you must contact the Associate Dean of Postgraduate Medical Education directly at one of Quebec’s faculties of medicine.

The Collège will only process applications that have been approved by a faculty of medicine in Quebec:

The faculty of medicine must send the Collège a letter confirming your admission to a specialty program at a university in Quebec or to a host or exchange program approved by the faculty of medicine or by the government authorities.

The letter must indicate the discipline and the start and end dates of the program. Applications will not be considered until this letter has been received from the faculty of medicine.

You must wait until the Collège gives you access to the form Fellow, which you can then complete through our Online services.

Documents to consult: 


  • You have a Doctor of Medicine degree from a school or university listed in the World Directory of Medical Schools published by the Foundation for Advancement of International Medical Education and Research (FAIMER).
  • You have a specialist’s certificate in the specialty the training period is in. If you have not obtained the certificate within 9 months of the start of the training period, you will have to provide proof that you have passed one of the required examinations (MCCEE or MCCQE Part I or USMLE / Step 2 CK). 
  • You have submitted certain documents to physiciansapply.ca and others to the Collège. See Documents required.

When the documents submitted to physiciansapply.ca have the verification status “Passed”, a letter of eligibility will be sent to your personal page at the earliest 9 months before the beginning of the training. A copy will be sent to the faculty of medicine by email.

In April of the same year, you will receive an email from the Collège’s “Training cards” section that will tell you what you need to do to complete your application for a training card through Online services and the applicable Fees.

As a fellow, you are authorized to perform, among the professional activities reserved to physicians, those that are required to complete your period of advanced training.
