Summary of Changes Made in This Calendar - Northern and Rural Health IV

Medicine 5605 Northern and Rural Health IV
Building on the competencies students have developed in Phase 2 (MEDS 5405), the focus of this course is the application of knowledge of health care service delivery in northern and rural communities, within and beyond Ontario. Students apply their knowledge of northern and rural health, culture, social realities, and economic circumstances by providing appropriate patient care. Students demonstrate reflexive engagement with their own practice-based experiences through narrative medicine, and through evaluation and analysis of topics pertinent to health care delivery in the North. Through their ongoing commitment to addressing the health care needs of the populations served in Northern Ontario, students are ready to become socially accountable and culturally safe physicians.
