Welcome to Kingston - 1000 Islands


The Kingston-1000 Islands site offers a traditional rotation-based residency training program. At the centre of your training are 48 weeks of core Family Medicine placements. In you first year, these will take place at the Queen’s Family Health Team (QFHT), located in historic downtown Kingston. The QFHT serves an extremely diverse patient population and also serves as a leading example of team-based primary care. In your second year, you will complete your Family Medicine rotations at community teaching practices throughout the region as you develop your independence as a physician. 

Your first year will also include a core teaching seminar series, weekly Grand Rounds, Resident Rounds, as well as ACLS, NRP, ALARM and other Critical Care training.

The remainder of your residency will comprise of rotations in other specialties and experiences related to Family Medicine. These rotations may be based at any of Kingston's four hospitals or other communities in the region. These departments offer a modified program for our residents and the preceptors are enthusiastic about Family Medicine learners. You will also have the opportunity to work with students from Queen’s School of Medicine and the Faculty of Health Sciences during your placements.
