Teaching and Learning Opportunities

Our family medicine residents provide community-based primary care in a supervised environment. You will offer care to a defined group of patients at the Bruyère Family Medicine Centre.

You will have a primary preceptor for your two year training period. Your preceptor will discuss and review your educational objectives, ensure that your direct observation requirements are met, and provide evaluations for family medicine rotations.

In addition to your core blocks of family medicine in a primary community practice, you may also work with family physicians in several other settings including rural practice and the family medicine hospital service at The Ottawa Hospital’s General Campus.

Patient Population

The Bruyère Family Medicine Centre serves a diverse, multilingual and multi-ethnic patient population. Our unit distinguishes itself in its unique humanitarian approach and exposure to under-serviced populations. You will encounter a wide variety of clinical problems with enhanced clinics in women’s health, obstetrics, pre and post natal care, sports medicine, well baby care and minor surgery.
