Thanks Tony. I think the First Patient Program you have running in the Med School is exactly the right model to encourage MDs to consider house calls later in their practice. PI don't think we did that as part of our family medicine rotations in our Meds 81 class here at Queen's...but maybe I'm forgetting. Certainly, house call require doctors being comfortable with "first aid" and practical home interventions. I think that while we focus on teaching the complex, invasive and molecular aspects of medicine we need to ensure that ALL of our trainees are competent first responders and skilled at first aid, regardless what type of MD they ultimately chose to become.
