Windsor Site – A Student Perspective

The Windsor campus of the Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry prides itself on the extent to which the local physicians and faculty are eager to be involved in all avenues of medical education – whether this be within the clinic walls or outside of it.                            

In the pre-clerkship phase of medical school, there is ample opportunity to perform observerships in a variety of specialties, and the enthusiasm of the local physicians drives the excellent teaching delivered during clinical methods as well as the case based small group discussions.  The quality of the education delivered in Windsor during the clerkship phase of medical school is evident in the fact that students who have completed clerkship rotations in Windsor have been extremely successful in CaRMs, the Canadian system of matching students and postgraduate training programs.

The dire need for health-care resources in the Windsor-Essex region and the close-knit faculty-student relationship has created unique opportunities for Schulich students such as the Schulich Windsor Health Lecture Series: a Windsor campus specific student initiative where medical students and practicing physicians team up to deliver lectures to the general public in an attempt to promote health and wellness.
