Training and research internships

Before submitting your admission and registration form, review the training and research internships section online, in particular the eligibility criteria.

You can do this type of internship by invitation from a Université Laval professor who agrees to oversee you and supervise your project. You will be admitted as a visiting student.

Since October 15, 2021, all students, including postdoctoral and medical fellows as well as training or research interns, have been required to be adequately protected against COVID-19 to access a health and social services establishment or a research centre adjacent to such an establishment for the purpose of their fellowship or internship in Quebec.

When requesting an invitation for a fellowship or internship, students who are not adequately protected against COVID-19 must notify their supervisor. Their invitation may be postponed or cancelled.

It is the students’ responsibility to ensure they meet the requirement for adequate protection against COVID-19 and to provide proof of vaccination to the Registrar’s Office when registering. Students who are not adequately protected cannot register for or carry out their fellowship or internship.
