Which program am I training under?
Trainees and specialist international medical graduates (SIMGs): All current trainees and SIMGs are enrolled in the 2012 Fellowship Program.
Fellows completing a Certificate of Advanced Training: Most Fellows in training are enrolled in the 2012 Certificates of Advanced Training. However, depending on their expected completion date, a small number are still enrolled in the 2003 Certificates of Advanced Training.
