HIGHLIGHTS

The Kitchener-Waterloo and Area (KW) site incorporates excellent learning opportunities in Kitchener-Waterloo, Cambridge, Guelph and Wellesley. Our site has a reputation for being innovative, progressive, and highly supportive.


Our site has wide acclaim for many of its innovations. The Centre for Family Medicine’s memory clinic has an international reputation for transforming primary care for patients and families suffering from dementia. Other national primary care innovations include the Mobility Clinic for persons with severe physical challenges, the Anti-coagulation Clinic, and the e-Health Centre of Excellence.


Our curriculum uses a partially integrated format to optimize learning for residents. Over 20 clinics have been built specifically to teach residents knowledge, skills and competencies relevant to becoming excellent family physicians in areas including obstetrics, children’s care, sports medicine, refugee health, women’s health, mental health, and many others. Family medicine rotations are conducted in family health team settings.


We have many enhanced skills and research opportunities for interested residents. Many graduates of the site program also come back to give current residents career advice. We are committed to assisting each individual resident in the program!
