uOttawa takes Lyon

Posted on Friday, October 21, 2016

The PGME office sent its first trainee for a rotation in France as a result of a new partnership between the Faculty of Medicine and L’Université de Lyon. Dr. Jessica Chan is currently training in the Radiation Oncology residency program. During her first two weeks, she excitedly shared the following:

“So far everything has been like a dream! Every day I can't believe that I'm actually here, working and living in Lyon! What an incredible opportunity. The hospital staff, residents and med students have all been wonderful. They are incredibly warm, welcoming and patient with my French, which I am trying to improve on! (…) I wish I could hand you all chocolate croissants right now through the computer screen! “

The breathtaking photo she shared portrays her favourite part of Lyon, near the Saone river. She has returned to Ottawa this past September. Dr. Jessica Chan is a great ambassador for the university’s Faculty of Medicine and we are very proud of her accomplishments.
