Program Description

The Western University General Practice Residency (GPR) was accredited in 1980 and is designed to provide experience in all phases of inpatient and ambulatory dental care in a hospital setting. In order to provide a broad educational and clinical experience, each resident spends three months at each of the three affiliated teaching hospitals. The resident also spends three months on an off service rotation to gain educational experience in Anaesthesiology, Otolaryngology, General Medicine, Emergency Medicine, Oral Maxillofacial Pathology & Sioux Lookout.

Throughout the year, regularly scheduled lectures, literature reviews and case presentations will be held. The objective of the residency is to create an environment for learning clinical and intellectual skills in order to better serve your patients. Five residents are selected each year. They are paid an annual stipend and get two weeks of paid holiday time.
