Message from the Interim Chair

Posted on Thursday, January 23, 2020

Welcome back after the holidays! I hope you all enjoyed a restful break.

Thank you to everyone who attended the DFM Annual Faculty Retreat on January 10 and 11. I'd like to thank Dr. Eric Wooltorton for putting together dynamic sessions and workshops, and our amazing staff for a successful 2-day event! Our keynote speaker Dr. Nancy Fowler, Executive Director of Academic Family Medicine at the College of Family Physicians of Canada, conferred what a national 3-year FM residency would look like along with generalist approaches in a world of increasing specialization. We are thrilled to announce this past weekend's retreat was the biggest faculty turnout in the last five years! What an energizing weekend at the Château Montebello‎! Visit the Retreat Web Guide for presentations (where available). I am honoured to be leading our department and highly value your tremendous work. I hope you are feeling recharged, inspired and motivated to take on new challenges! Photo Album

Another round of CaRMS is just around the corner and we are excited to interview 500+ candidates who have applied to our program! Candidates who have received an interview offer will interview at our administrative offices (600 and 850 Peter Morand Cres) between January 23-24 and January 30-31, 2020 . We are also offering interviews at our Pembroke site for those who have applied to Pembroke and want to see the site in person – these interviews will take place on January 22 and 29 2020 .

CaRMS truly is a team effort; we thank you for your time, patience and support as we work to make this event a great experience for all involved! Let's welcome our potential candidates with open arms!
