The Department of Family Medicine at McGill offers a fully accredited two-year postgraduate training program based in a university family medicine group practice (GMF-U or groupe de médecine familiale universitaire).
At all nine GMF-U locations, the program offers three main components: comprehensive and longitudinal family medicine practice, coordinated training in the medical specialties, and exposure to rural medicine practice.
The programs in our GMF-Us include a comprehensive curriculum, which focuses on management of common patient problems in an ambulatory setting. Principles of family dynamics, utilization of community resources, and optimal cooperation with allied health professionals in providing continuity of care are also emphasized in the two-year curriculum.
At McGill, we have systematically aligned both our clinical and academic curriculum with the College of Family Physician’s Evaluation Objectives (105 Priority topics). Our ultimate goal is to prepare our residents to become competent family physicians for the practice of medicine as lifelong learners.
