PGY2 Community Family Medicine Rotations


Your second year Family Medicine Rotation will be comprised of 24 weeks of Family Medicine. The CFPC requires that of those 24 weeks, at least eight must be in a rural community, at least eight with a Family Physician who does their own intrapartum care and deliveries and at least eight with a Family Physician who cares for their own patients in hospital. At Queen’s, we have built relationships with many different community physicians (both within Kingston and in nearby communities) in order to offer many different options to help you fulfill these requirements. You might choose to complete all 24 weeks at one comprehensive practice or spend equal amounts of time in two or three different locations.  

For example, your schedule might look like one of these options:
  • 24 weeks in one rural Family Medicine practice with Obstetrics and Hospitalist care
  • 16 weeks in one Family Medicine practice (rural and with Hospital care) and 8 weeks in a second Family Medicine practice (with Obstetrics)
  • 8 weeks in one rural Family Medicine practice with Obstetrics and Hospitalist care and 16 weeks in an urban Family Medicine setting
There are also options to combine your Community Family Medicine rotation with emergency medicine, psychiatry, or palliative care. We will work with you to arrange a schedule that satisfies your educational requirements and is also compatible with your personal needs. The Rotation List for 2012-2013 shows all the communities and practice options that were available to residents this year.
