Rotations for Medical Students and Residents in Family Medicine
Québec medical students and family medicine residents can do a 1 or 2 month rural rotation in a Cree community, with lodging and food provided by the CBHSSJB. The rotations are accredited by the Collège des Médecins du Québec. McGill medical students must contact the McGill Electives office at email@example.com (Phone: 514-398-5390) at least 3 months in advance. Students from other universities will need to get the rotation approved by their university.
Residents must apply through their respective Department of Family Medicine.
