For the past two years, the OCFP has created a fund to support resident and medical student events events. Residents have $1000 to use towards on-campus events, retreats or any other event that engages other family medicine residents.

If you are interested in organizing your own event with a family medicine focus, the OCFP would like to help you fund this. We would like to invite PGY-1s and 2s to consider sending a completed application form to program.chief@dfm.queensu.ca. (please do not send to the OCFP support e-mail). Your OCFP leads will then select one event to complete the submission for funding. Please submit to us by December 1st, 2017.

We encourage you to visit this link in order to obtain full details.

An important update for the Elective Database located here.

This database was created by our previous site chiefs to help prospective residents effectively plan electives. Some of the PGY-2s may have already noticed that on the One45 form for electives, the form link has now been integrated.

We highly encourage you all to click that link and fill it out for completed electives only (not mandatory rotations) - once submitted it automatically updates the database. If you do not wish to put your name/contact information please don't. The site is only accessible through the DFM e-mail accounts for privacy. We will clear out electives more than a couple years old to keep things relevant.
