Funding Resources

While enrolled as graduate trainees, CIP participants will not be eligible to obtain clinical earnings. Funding for the research portion of the CIP is available from a wide variety of external and internal sources.

Participants should discuss funding alternatives with their Program Director, Graduate Coordinator, and Research Supervisor. Participants should also contact their graduate unit about award opportunities and the deadlines for these awards. Most graduate unit websites will provide information on awards such as the eligibility requirements and application deadlines.

Tuition Fees:

Like all other graduate trainees, CIP trainees must pay tuition fees to the School of Graduate Studies. For a fees schedule, contact your graduate unit, the School of Graduate Studies or visit the following website:

Postgraduate Medical Education Registration Fee: CIP trainees must pay the annual PGME registration fee.
