RVH has an innovative strategy to combat the severe shortage of family physicians in the region. In June 2009, RVH opened its Family Medicine Residency Program in affiliation with University of Toronto’s Faculty of Medicine. RVH is an official teaching site of the University of Toronto’s accredited program, which is the last stop for medical residents training to become family doctors.
“This is the next logical step for RVH as we continue to develop unique ways to deliver exceptional health care to the people of this region,” said Janice Skot, RVH President and CEO. “This initiative is a milestone for health care innovation and community-based medical training and will position RVH as a centre of educational excellence. A dynamic medical staff, broad range of programs and state-of-the-art equipment all combine to create the perfect learning environment for doctors-in-training.”
