Welcome Family Medicine Residents

We at Victoria Hospital look forward to having you join us. Our rotation involves exposure to the delivery room, gynaecological emergencies and general Ob/Gyn clinics. It can be tailored to best serve your needs and you will get out of it what you put in it. What follows should help you prepare for this rotation.

What do I need to do before I start?

  • Review the objectives of the rotation

  • Please email Susanne Deakin if you have not already received an email from her with your roster for the rotation.

  • Print out at least 3 evaluation forms to be distributed to at least 2 consultants in OB/GYN or Family Medicine that you have worked with during the rotation so that they can document your performance. One of the evaluations can be done by a senior OB/GYN resident. These must be completed and returned to Dr. Kirby by the evaluation day.

  • Review the Orientation Information

  • Review the Hospital-Authorized Autopsy

  • If you have vacation requests, please complete a Leave Request Form and email it to Olivia Bachmann. We require you to attend at least 3 weeks of the rotation.  Otherwise, holidays are usually not a problem.

What happens on the first day?

  • Please go to the Delivery Room at Victoria Hospital at 7 a.m. to meet with the resident team. There will be a meeting with Dr. Kirby as well to answer any questions about how the rotation will run.

  • We schedule residents to do 4 call-days per month including 1 weekend-day. Please speak with the chief resident regarding the call schedule.

  • Evaluation of seminars given and of the faculty are also greatly appreciated. Please hand these in at the end of the rotation.

Finally, if you have any questions, email Dr. Kirby.
