First Year

The first year of training provides core instruction in both family medicine and acute-care hospital practice. Residents are attached to one of the urban academic teaching units for your Family Medicine rotations. Experiences in Family Medicine include outpatients and office-based care, home visits, caring for your patients admitted to hospital, and following maternity patients through pregnancy and delivery. There is a wide variety of teaching sessions specific to community needs, rounds, and the integrated and nutrition programs.

Second and Third Years

The unique curriculum in the second and third years of training provides an integrated approach to family medicine across all age groups with enhanced training in geriatric care. Twelve months of training dedicated to care of the older adult is distributed across the last two years of training and includes longitudinal clinics and longitudinal nursing home experiences.

Curriculum highlights of the final two years include:

  • Inpatient geriatric assessment unit and tertiary care consults
  • Outpatient day hospital and prime
  • Behaviour unit
  • Geriatric psychiatry
  • Health policy rotation

Participants will be well-prepared to assume leadership roles in advancing Family Medicine-Geriatric Care in Manitoba. Participants will be eligible to sit the CCFP Certification Examination at the end of the third year of training.
