Departmental Updates - September 2019

Posted on Thursday, September 12, 2019

Undergraduate Program

A new academic year has just started and we would like to welcome our new students to the Faculty. With close to 170 students in our Anglophone and Francophone streams, we are happy to showcase family medicine to all these future physicians.

I would like to welcome our new undergraduate Francophone Clerkship Director, Dr. Annabelle Pellerin. She has graduated from our undergrad program and has completed her residency at the Montfort Hospital. Welcome Dr. Pellerin!

We are recruiting some preceptors for the Francophone Community Preceptor Program. This program will give you the opportunity to have first or second year medical students coming for a few afternoons to shadow you. If you are interested, please send an e-mail to coorclin@uottawa.ca.
