Family Medicine

Preclinical (Year 1 & 2)

Overview

First and second year medical students will learn about doctor-patient interaction, patient-centred care, and put into practice the history and physical exam skills learned in other components of Physicianship. This early experiential learning in a community physician office allows the learner to apply critical thinking skills to 'real-life' clinical context. First-year students attend eight half-day sessions, and second-year medical students attend seven half-day sessions over their academic year.
