Electives at the Queen's Department of Family Medicine


The Department of Family Medicine at Queen's University is glad to learn of your interest in Family Medicine!

We have several opportunities for clerkship elective students. However, we can only accommodate one student per block.

The elective dates available are as follows:

  1. October 16 to October 27, 2017
  2. October 30 to November 10, 2017
  3. November 13 to November 24, 2017
  4. November 27 to December 8, 2017
  5. January 8 to January 19, 2017
Please note that Queen’s Students apply by emailing the Undergraduate Program Assistant and the emails must be sent at least four months prior to the beginning of the requested elective. The earliest date emails will be accepted is six months in advance of the requested elective date.

If you are not a current Queen’s medical student, please visit http://meds.queensu.ca/undergraduate/visiting_medical_electives for more information about applying for a visiting elective.

Due to the limited number of elective spots that we have we give preferential status to students in the following order: Queen's University, other Canadian Universities, and medical students from other medical schools. We realize that our elective opportunities are limited. If you are interested in applying to Queen's University Family Medicine for residency we want to reassure you that we look favorably on a Family Medicine elective(s) done anywhere.

Please contact the Undergraduate Program Assistant (Kim Wallace, undergraduatefm@dfm.queensu.ca), if you have any questions.
