The educational goal of the Department of Family Medicine is to excel at providing modern, innovative family medicine education. With this goal in mind, the department is proud to provide a two-year family medicine residency program offering the following: 

  • urban and rural (distributed) rotations as well as learning sites in diverse communities,
  • a clinical program supported by dedicated faculty and preceptors,
  • an academic program featuring evidence based medicine, practice quality improvement, procedural skills and exam preparation, and
  • valuable research opportunities for residents.

The training of residents emphasizes the development of skills, behaviours and attitudes required for effective, community-based clinical practice, where the practice is based on collaborative doctor-patient relationship and where the physician is a resource to the practice.

The Triple-C Curriculum followed by the Department of Family Medicine is enhanced with an innovative competency-based assessment initiative, development opportunities offered in partnership with the faculty development program, and the availability of enhanced skills training in selected areas.

This primary, two-year program leads to eligibility for certification by the College of Family Physicians of Canada.
