Resident Experience

PGY-1
Spiral learning design: having the opportunity to rotate through each PM&R service as a junior and senior resident, which better enables you to set learning goals, engage in graduated learning responsibilities, and monitor your progress•Competence by design (CBD) curriculum since 2017: this is led by Dr. Jessica Trier who is dedicated to medical education research and advancing medical education through providing teaching and comprehensive feedback in the clinical setting daily•Small size: with one resident per year, we have a tight knit program; each member is invested in one another’s learning and growth
I am impressed by our staff’s interest in learning about who we are as individuals, outside of our clinical roles. Each resident has distinct strengths and clinical/research interests, which are supported and even celebrated.•The location! As busy residents, time is precious. The commutable size of Kingston has significantly contributed to my quality of life, especially while on home call. And it’s close to the larger centres of Toronto, Ottawa, and Montreal. The best of both worlds.
Supportive and friendly; I attribute this to our program’s small size and the nature of the people that the Queen’s community attracts.
Moving in the local gym with functional fitness equipment, running along Kingston’s waterfront, exploring the wineries and microbreweries of Prince Edward County, and enjoying Kingston’s restaurant scene that sources fresh ingredients from the many surrounding small-scale farms! (I love Kingston).
Recently, the program hosted an educational retreat for residents and faculty to engage in interactive activities to evaluate our current curriculum and brainstorm ways in which we can continue to optimize it. Resident wellness was at the forefront of each discussion. This is just one example that highlights how the faculty is open and responsive to resident feedback.
Continuing to develop professionally and personally by engaging in off-service rotations with a physical medicine & rehabilitation lens, ultimately to better serve my future patients throughout their rehabilitation.
