Overview of the Family Medicine Residency Program




The Queen's Family Medicine Residency Program is at the forefront of medical education in Canada.  Our goal is to prepare you to become a capable and confident Family Physician with the skills to practice Family Medicine anywhere in the world.

Queen's Family Medicine is a two-year residency program and the curriculum is based on the CFPC "Triple C" Curriculum model (Comprehensive learning, Continuity of learning, supervision, and patient care, and learning that is Centred in Family Medicine).

In the fall of 2011, the CFPC conferred full accreditation status on all of our Family Medicine programs.  In 2012, the Professional Association of Residents of Ontario (PARO) presented the Department of Family Medicine with its Residency Program Excellence Award, nominated by residents and given yearly to one Royal College or Family Medicine program.  Our graduates can be found working across Canada and throughout the world, in many different settings.
