Join your colleagues over an informal dinner on Thursday, October 15, 2015 during the CSIM Annual Meeting in Charlottetown, at a local restaurant (dinner cost not included) to discuss items of interest.
Serving Rural and Remote Canadians
This session will be facilitated by two general internists: Dr. Celine Leger-Nolet, who practices in Temiskaming (northern Ontario) and Dr. Amy Hendricks, whose remote catchment area includes the Northwest Territories and part of Nunavut. We will start with a few questions (below) for rural/remote internists and see where discussion leads! Residents interested in non-urban community practice are most welcome, as are any internists who may be wondering what practice is like “out there”.
What do you love best about your practice? What would you rather not have to do?
What keeps you in your community if/when medicine becomes overwhelming?
How have your community’s needs changed your practice pattern? Why did you decide to practice rural/remote GIM? Have your expectations been fulfilled?
