The Department of Family and Community Medicine's (DFCM) Residency Program prepares future family physicians for comprehensive primary care in an evolving health care system. Providing them with the opportunity to practice anywhere in the province, the country or the world.
Family medicine is the central component of learning at DFCM - residents see themselves as family doctors from their first day in the program. At present, all residents spend at least eight months of the 24-month program in family medicine and continue half-days of family medicine during all rotations to promote continuity of care with patients.
Our program is recognized nationally and internationally for its excellence. We are the second family medicine residency program in the world, and first in North America, to be accredited by the World Organization of Family Doctors (WONCA). Read the accreditation report.
Our learning opportunities are superior in breadth and quality - and is flexible to meet your learning needs and expectations. We hope you will join us.
