Annual Resident Retreat
Each resident is required to complete a scholarly project during the two-year residency. Residents are supported by faculty and staff of the Research Division to complete this work. The project must be presented by residents at the annual Resident Scholarship Day and a manuscript must be submitted. All residents are required to complete scholarly academic modules and will have protected time to complete these activities.
Quality improvement and reflection on one’s own practice are important components of the practice of Family Medicine and there is increasing emphasis on this activity. All residents are required to participate in a practice assessment, as set out by their training site.
Planning for academic sessions is coordinated across all sites of the program. An Evidence Based Medicine course and a Scholarship Skills course are mandatory for the first year. Physician Management courses and ethics courses are provided. Written and Simulated Office Oral Exam preparation is provided.
