Queen's University - Family Medicine - Belleville - Quinte
Queen’s University Family Medicine is a highly regarded longstanding program (established in 1972). Our two-year program is based on the College of Family Physicians of Canada competency-based “Triple C” Curriculum (Comprehensive learning; Continuity of patient care, curriculum, and supervision; and family medicine-Centred education). The program consists of core family medicine experiences complemented by experiences in other specialties relevant to family medicine.
Belleville-Quinte Program Highlights
- Family medicine-centred two-year integrated, horizontal “Triple C” Curriculum (Comprehensive learning, Continuity of learning, and family medicine-Centred education)
- An average of two full days in family medicine clinics each week with a primary preceptor, alongside horizontal experiences in other disciplines relevant to family medicine
- Eight weeks of rural community family medicine (locations could include Picton, Bancroft, and any other Queen's-approved communities)
- Four weeks of internal medicine (ICU or ward) taken in one-week hospitalist blocks also in longitudinal fashion with family medicine-friendly preceptors
- Eight weeks of electives taken as four in PGY1 and four in PGY2
- Great exposure to hospitalist, house calls, LTC, procedures, palliative care, leadership, and practice management
Your application to the Queen's Family Medicine Residency Program will be centrally processed for all four training sites: Kingston-1000 Islands, Belleville-Quinte, Peterborough-Kawartha, and Queen's-Bowmanville-Oshawa-Lakeridge. This process means that you will only have one interview, with results communicated to each site you have applied to. You must make a separate application to each site you are interested in. Please include all required documentation in each application and submit the same documentation to each site. You will have the opportunity to individually rank each site you are interested in.
What makes the Belleville-Quinte program special?
Training at our Belleville-Quinte site means you will be part of a close-knit group of residents (average, 12) working with community family medicine preceptors with a wide range of practice styles and significant involvement in our local hospital department of family medicine. We are fortunate to have the Belleville Queen's University Family Medicine Centre, a 12,000-square foot facility featuring 22 patient rooms, a procedure room, and office/lounge space for physicians and residents. The office/lounge space serves as the residency hub for training, offering resident facilities, a large conference room with video-conferencing capabilities, and the site’s administrative offices. Physician offices are either in the Family Medicine Centre or in surrounding clinics in central Belleville.
