Canadian Global Health Experiences

Residents may chose as some of their core or elective rotations clinical experiences that focus on the health and needs of people experiencing health inequities in Canada.  Relevant populations would include aboriginal populations, persons experiencing the health effects of poverty, new immigrants and refugees to Canada, persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities, or incarcerated individuals, to name a few.

The Department of Family Medicine has a variety of opportunities available for residents as part of the core curriculum, and these are listed below.  Residents are also encouraged to seek out their own relevant opportunities in Kingston or elsewhere.
