Delivering the future of
We deliver a flexible and innovative program that respects residents as adult learners. Our two-year postgraduate education program is defined by the principles of Family Medicine, featuring a sophisticated, horizontal "Triple C" curriculum that ensures residents are training within interprofessional family medicine environments.
A state-of-the-art digital Portfolio evaluation system facilitates frequent and timely feedback between residents and their advisors. Programs are tailored to support special interests in rural and remote medicine, emergency medicine, anesthesia, womens' health, global health, care of the elderly, palliative care and care of people with developmental disabilities.
Residents become part of our interprofessional care teams with an emphasis on quality, accountability and patient-centered care.
With a strong research base, residents develop the tools necessary to conduct evidence-based and population based medicine, to be proactive in their patients’ care, preventing ill health as well as treating it. Training at Queen's prepares physicians for family practice anywhere in Canada. For three decades, Queen's has been delivering the future of primary healthcare.
