Island Medical Program Teaching Opportunities

If you are interested in any of the teaching opportunities below within the Island Medical Program, please contact impfac@uvic.ca and we will be happy to provide you with additional information.

 

Opportunities include:


Clinical Experiences Family Practice Years 1 and 2

The IMP welcomes applications from family physicians willing to provide clinical teaching in their practice covering both general family practice (Year 1 and 2) and focused areas of family practice (Year 2) within the renewed curriculum.

The students go out to their clinical sessions on Tuesday or Thursday afternoons (First Year) and on Wednesday and Friday afternoons (Second Year) for approximately 8 sessions per term. For those practitioners who would love to teach in this manner, but for whom the time and schedule just do not work, some time shifting can occur. Sessions run for at least two hours, and not more than three hours.

There are additional opportunities for teaching in the Family Practice-oriented seminars and workshops.

Eleanor Good, Clinical Experiences Program Administrator >Dr. M. E. Fonger, Year 1 and 2 Family Practice Director >

   

Clinical Experiences - Clinical Skills Years 1 and 2

 

Clinical Skills teaching occurs in the Year 1 and 2 Clinical Experiences portion of the Renewed Curriculum. The IMP welcomes applications from family physicians willing to act as tutors in these sessions, where students are taught history-taking and physical examination skills in our resource rooms at the Royal Jubilee Hospital.

Tutors are required for single sessions, and for recurring blocks of 2-4 sessions, which typically run in the afternoons. Sessions run for 2-4 hours.

Opportunities for Teaching Year 4 Students:

Please consider being a preceptor for a senior medical student for either a two- or four-week elective experience in Family Medicine.

Students greatly appreciate the opportunity to work with Family Physicians in their offices and gain exposure to common clinical problems seen in Family Practice. Preceptors in the past have also found this to be a very enjoyable and rewarding experience.

Lynne Fisher, Year 3 and 4 Program Manager >

Preparation for Medical Practice

This fourth-year six-week course is an opportunity for students to return from their various clinical rotations and come together in both large and small group learning sessions to help consolidate their learning and clinical reasoning skills while also helping them prepare for their CARMS interviews and their next step into postgraduate training. 

Tutors are required for the many small group and standardized patient sessions that occur during these six weeks.

Year 3 Rural Family Practice Rotation

The Rural Family Practice Rotation is a province-wide rotation that is four weeks in duration and is scheduled throughout the academic year. This rotation allows the students to experience rural life and practice in a rural setting with the hope that this will encourage more students to become rural family physicians.

Teaching Opportunities and potential participation within the development and implementation of the Renewed Curriculum

 

There are a number of new opportunities for participation available for our family physicians in the new MEDD courses of the Renewed Curriculum.

Family Practice input is needed in particular in the theme sessions as the cases are developed for Case Based Learning (CBL).

The Case Writing teams will also be welcoming the participation of interested family physicians. There is much to be done as the Renewed Curriculum rolls out.

There will also be regular Clinical Decision making sessions planned for our students. It will be important to have the family physician voice, and other clinical specialties along with the basic scientists’ perspective in these sessions.

FLEX

“FLEX (flexible and enhanced learning) is a new, innovative series of three courses in the renewed UBC medical undergraduate program that offers medical undergraduate students unique opportunities to pursue a variety of scholarly activities within a defined learning space.” It includes community based learning which can include medical students helping physicians in the community with any research that they are interested to do for example, or to help develop a workshop, learning materials for physicians or patients, review resources that are available in the community for a certain chronic disease such as diabetes.
