Program Highlights

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.

 

Queen’s-Bowmanville-Oshawa-Lakeridge (QBOL) Program Highlights
  • Our site was designed based on the CFPC’s Triple C Competency-based curriculum
  • Academic days have been mapped to cover the 99 Priority Topics during PGY1.
  • A wide variety of specialty and family medicine preceptors experienced in teaching family medicine residents.
  • The first two months of PGY1 are designed to provide you with a basic “tool kit” to increase your confidence and consolidate your skills.
  • Longitudinal availability for your family medicine clinic.
  • One four-week block of inpatient care and one four-week block of elective time during both PGY1 and PGY2.
  • An additional eight- to 12-week block of rural family medicine in PGY2.

 

Besides the blocks mentioned above, you will learn in a family medicine clinic longitudinally about half the time, with additional integrated learning experiences scheduled alongside. These experiences include about three shifts/month on the labour and delivery ward in the first half of your PGY1 year. Those shifts will switch over to ER shifts midway through your PGY1 year, although you have the option to also continue with OB shifts. Additional clinical experience such as behavioural medicine, outpatient procedural skills, pediatrics, palliative care, long-term care, and dermatology will also be part of your schedule.

We also reassign you to a different family medicine preceptor for your PGY2 year to allow you to see additional practice styles and have opportunity to switch between Oshawa, our more urban site, and Bowmanville, which provides a smaller community flavour of family medicine. In addition, our residents have access (but are not limited) to preferred rural rotations in Port Perry, Haliburton, and Lindsay.
