Features of our Windsor Campus

  • Training in urban and suburban community practices
  • Ample elective opportunities during and outside of family medicine block time with teaching faculty who have a wide variety of special interests
  • Experience interdisciplinary care while working with nurse practitioners, pharmacists, physiotherapists

The Windsor Campus has an integrated 2-year curriculum. There are electronic medical resources for residents, including computer and internet access, and standard medical resources in each core Family Medicine training site.

Windsor's training program affords residents ample one-on-one time with preceptors and provides a positive resident/preceptor experience overall. Family Medicine residents are in high demand in Windsor due to the limited number of residents in other specialties.
