The Queen’s University Department of Emergency Medicine Fellowship in Resuscitation and Reanimation is the first training program in North America to offer Fellowship Training to physicians who want to focus on Resuscitation Medicine.

Established in 2008, the program brings together doctors from different backgrounds to advance their understanding of resuscitation medicine, crisis leadership, research and education. Graduates of the fellowship program will lead the advancement of resuscitation medicine as a future subspecialty.

Program Options


This flexible Fellowship is designed to meet the needs of learners with a range of backgrounds and goals. Learners may participate as residents, as clinical fellows, or as research fellows. Participants may tailor the program, but there are typically three options:


Academic Program


Fellows in the Academic Program attend the weekly education sessions from July to October and January to June. Fellows are required to complete an academic project between January and June. This program does not involve patient care.


Successful candidates will receive a Certificate in Resuscitation and Reanimation from Queen’s University. Physicians currently working in a clinical area with significant resuscitation activity may complete the academic program and apply for credit of their clinical work to receive a Fellowship in Resuscitation and Reanimation from Queen’s University.


One-Year Clinical Program


Fellows in the Clinical Fellowship program divide their time equally between Fellowship activities and clinical activities in their base specialty. They are required to attend the education sessions held weekly from July to December and participate in the Kingston General Hospital’s rapid response team, trauma team, and cardiac arrest team. They must also teach resuscitation skills to a wide range of learners. Fellows who are enrolled in a residency program will have clinical rotations in Critical Care and ECHO and are required to complete an academic project.


This program is particularly appropriate for residents in their fourth year of an emergency medicine program or their first year after successful completion of residency training in Emergency Medicine. Successful candidates will receive their Fellowship in Resuscitation and Reanimation from Queen’s University.


Two-Year Clinical Program


Learners with an interest in more advanced academic development participate in the program for two years, with the majority of the second year being spent on a research or educational project. Successful candidates will publish their project and will receive their Fellowship in Resuscitation and Reanimation from Queen’s University.

Meet The Fellows

Kirsten Litke

Resuscitation and Reanimation Fellow

Mathieu Brunet

Resuscitation and Reanimation Fellow

Originally from Montreal, Mathieu spent the last year working in the emergency department and the ICU in beautiful Magdalen islands. He is now delighted to be in Kingston and to spend the year practicing, thinking and learning about resuscitation medicine alongside physicians who share his passion for this subspecialty.

Emily House

Resuscitation and Reanimation Fellow

Emily is a fourth year resident in the Queen's FRCP program and one of the Resus fellows. She originally trained at NOSM in Sudbury and is from Northern Ontario (... if you can call Parry Sound 'the north'...). Aside from emergency medicine, she has always enjoyed 'the theatre' and still threatens to one day run off and join it! She loves people, traveling, outtripping, speaking in accents, theme parties, her drumming husband and dog, getting outside and spending long weekends by the lake with friends and family. She has always maintained an interest in Global Health- an area of medicine that she intends to have as part of her practice throughout her career.
