Kildonan Medical Centre (KMC) is located at the Seven Oaks General Hospital (SOGH), a community hospital with a large family medicine presence. This hospital, Winnipeg’s newest, is located in the ethnically diverse north-end of the city. The teaching unit takes in about 10-13 new residents each year. The residents are graduates from Canadian or foreign medical schools seeking training as family physicians.

KMC includes:

  • Five full-time academic family physicians
  • Two part-time academic family physicians
  • Part-time psychiatrist and psychologist
  • Part-time clinical pharmacist
  • A part-time dietitian
  • A full-time nurse practitioner
  • A full-time social worker
  • Experienced nursing support

Location plays an important role in determining where residents will eventually practice, because residency graduates will typically continue to practice in geographic proximity to that of their program or in similar environment. Kildonan Medical Centre is based in a community hospital and the training program is therefore specifically oriented to prepare graduates for community-based practice.

Residents at KMC will have an opportunity and responsibility to:

  • Participate in delivery of the full range of health services to patients
  • Be involved in health promotion, health monitoring, acute and chronic problem management and rehabilitation through regularly scheduled clinical time.
  • Work closely with an assigned preceptor as well as with other health care professionals in providing patient care.
  • Be encouraged to select patients for on-going care. This can be seen as developing a “mini practice” within the practice of the supervising preceptor.
