All rotations are conducted within the Waterloo Regional Campus area which incorporates Kitchener-Waterloo, Cambridge, Guelph, Wellesley and surrounding communities. Second year electives and core two block rural rotations may be conducted further afield if desired.
Each year, residents conduct 16 weeks of full-time family medicine at their home base site (see the map and links below for information about each site) and return for weekly continuity clinics the rest of their 2 years of residency.
Following the CaRMS match, our admin staff take great care to help residents match to each site through an internal matching process.
