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?
