The University of Ottawa, Department of Family Medicine Community stream refers to community teaching practices sites; we offer placements in 25 community practice sites located in the city of Ottawa area.
Learners are clinically based in one of community teaching sites and are academically to a community practice for all core educational activities.
In this stream, we offer a variety of training opportunities as well as modified rural streams (with Family Medicine core rotations done in a rural setting, and specialty rotations done in the city of Ottawa).
While French is not a requirement, there is ample opportunity for residents to acquire and develop their French language skills.
Resident participation is vital to the integrity and growth of our program. Residents participate in all committees in the educational program and play a substantial role in shaping the academic direction of the program.
All community sites are affiliated with one of the hospitals located in Ottawa (General or Civic) and offer a variety of specialty and hospital-based Family Medicine opportunities.
The residency program offers a wide range of flexibility within individual training schedules to allow residents to further their own specific learning goals and needs, in order to maximize the attainment of baseline competencies, as well as enhanced opportunities in obstetrics, palliative care, sports medicine, women’s health, inner city medicine, etc.
All community-based residents have a rural rotation in each of their years of residency. The balance of the urban and rural skills allows our residents to become well-rounded, clinically competent family physicians.
Global health opportunities are highly supported by a strong team of family physicians. Residents have an opportunity to travel to Benin or Iqaluit.
