At the Kingston & 1000 Islands site, we strive to help you make the most of your residency. We will work with you to build a schedule that meets your interests and needs. If it’s important for you to stay in Kingston as much as possible, or you want to have a wide range of experiences across the region, we can make it happen.
If you are completing a compulsory rotation outside of Kingston, we will provide you with accommodation and a travel stipend. We do recommend that you have access to a vehicle during your residency in order to facilitate any out-of-town rotations or placements at various locations in the city.
We also work hard to accommodate parental leave requests and ensure that you receive your entitled vacation each year.
Besides the aforementioned accommodations and travel stipend for out-of-town rotations, we also offer you Conference/Educational leave days and a Resident Allowance that can be used for conference registrations, textbooks, software or other educational resources.
You also have full access to the Queen’s library system and resources, as well as access to UpToDate.
During your residency, you will be paired with a faculty member who will be your Academic Advisor to help you through your development as a Family Physician. We also have a Faculty Advisor who is available to meet with any resident experiencing difficulty.
