NOSM anesthesia resident training starts next summer
The Northern Ontario School of Medicine (NOSM) will welcome its first class of anesthesia resident training in the school’s newest Royal College of Physician and Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC) program on July 1, 2013.
The five-year program will be based in Sudbury, with learning opportunities in communities including Thunder Bay, Sault Ste. Marie and North Bay, as well as other smaller communities including Parry Sound. The structure of the program includes six elective rotations and three Community Anesthesia rotations throughout their residency. A rotation is a four-week long placement in a clinical setting.
“These are opportunities for the residents to further develop an interest in sub-specialties of anesthesiology, increase their experience in an area not well represented so far in their training, work in a smaller more rural setting to get a sense of how it differs from larger centers, meet their own learning needs and/or explore a community as a possible location to work,” explains Dr. Rob Anderson, Program Director Anesthesiology.
At this time, there are no scheduled rotations specific to Parry Sound or any other city.
“But the residents will have the opportunity to visit a number of locations during residency and Parry Sound is certainly among these exciting opportunities for our future residents,” Dr. Anderson added.
