Canadian AAGL Programs

Three Canadian fellowships are a part of the American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists (AAGL) fellowship program:

  • AAGL: University of Toronto—Mount Sinai & Women’s College Hospital
  • AAGL: University of Toronto—Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre
  • AAGL: University of Ottawa


For applicants applying to one of these three Canadian MIS programs that are part of the AAGL, you can apply directly through CanSAGE to these programs and these programs will be included in the CanSAGE Match. There is NO need to apply to the AAGL nor do you need to participate in the AAGL Match process for the three participating programs above.
If you are applying to any other American AAGL programs, then you still have to apply through the AAGL. Please note, however, that the CanSAGE match date is before the American match date so if you enter and are accepted through the CanSAGE match, you would be expected to withdraw from the American match. The Canadian AAGL programs will submit the matched applicant directly to the AAGL.
