Is there any help for me to integrate and become familiar with the "rules of the road?"

  • Yes, the day-to-day information necessary to function on the Ob/Gyn Service is laid out in the Residents' Manual. It can be a great help to you.  Because it contains some confidential information, it is secure and located in the "Residents: Private" area accessible with logon and password only.  It will become available to you once you're registered in the program.
  • The Director of the program, Dr. Michel Prefontaine, is very approachable and eager to ensure that all residents succeed in their program.

Is there welcoming information for residents new to London?

Yes, please visit the Residents: Private section of the site.  It will be made available to you once you are registered in the program.
