The Division of General Internal Medicine offers a one to two year fellowship program that prepares graduates for a wide variety of careers ranging from community based practice to academic medicine. Our friendly program provides excellent opportunities and flexibility to meet the needs of the learners preparing them for FRCPC certification and beyond.
Admission to the General Internal Medicine program at Queen's University is through the Medicine Subspecialty Match, coordinated by the Canadian Resident Matching Service (CaRMS).
Interviews will be conducted by one faculty member and one resident. The length of the interview will be approximately 30 minutes. Candidates are invited to participate in a tour of the Health Sciences Centre and Lunch on their interview day. Dr. Marcotte will take this opportunity to speak to the candidates about the program.
The GIM residents participate in a longitudinal GIM Fellows' Clinic where they act as MRP (most responsible physician) for their patient cohort, and the faculty rotate through. Referrals are all urgent referrals from the community or ER, so are generally more interesting than a standard general internal medicine clinic. The GIM Fellows' Clinic is also a venue for the residents to follow up patients they have seen in the emergency department, discharged from hospital or have seen on the GIM consultation service. In this way, over two years the residents develop important skills in ambulatory care, managing the clinic, their patient cohort, and the challenge of advocating and managing resources for their patients in an ambulatory setting.
