PAIRS is proud of the important role Resident Doctors contribute to Saskatchewan’s healthcare system!
Residents work under supervision of staff physicians for two to six years of further training in our specialty of choice. Our role is to assess patients, write prescriptions, perform procedures, and work with the rest of the healthcare team to make treatment decisions. Any time you or your loved ones are seen in a health clinic, assessed in the emergency room, or admitted to a hospital ward, you are likely to be assessed by at least one of the 443 Resident Doctors in Saskatchewan. We provide a significant portion of the around-the-clock hospital and on-call coverage for acute care in Saskatchewan. Outside of our clinical duties, many residents work to improve the healthcare system through advocacy and leadership involvements in provincial and national organizations.
