Queen’s University Family Medicine is a highly regarded longstanding program (established in 1972). Our two-year program is based on the College of Family Physicians of Canada competency-based “Triple C” Curriculum (Comprehensive learning; Continuity of patient care, curriculum, and supervision; and family medicine-Centred education). The program consists of core family medicine experiences complemented by experiences in other specialties relevant to family medicine.
