Graduate training affiliation is available through the Department of Medicine, the School of Public Health, or other Departments.
AHS is Canada’s first and largest province-wide, fully-integrated health system, responsible for delivering health services to the over 4 million people living in Alberta, as well as to some residents of Saskatchewan, B.C. and the Northwest Territories.
