Since 1878, Western University has been committed to serving our communities through the pursuit of academic excellence and by providing students, faculty, and community members with life-long opportunities for intellectual, social, and cultural growth. We seek excellent students, faculty, and staff to join us in what has become known as the "Western Experience" - an opportunity to contribute to a better world through the development of new knowledge, new abilities, new connections, and new ways to make a difference.
The Department of Family Medicine specializes in training comprehensive family physicians and future leaders in Family Medicine. This is done through a highly adaptable program that includes tailor-made curriculum and educational programs for residents.
The Family Medicine Department requires motivated individuals to assist in the process of screening applicant files for the 2021 residency application process. Medical student applicants submit their application materials through the Canadian Resident Matching Service (CaRMS). These application packages include a personal letter, academic history, and applicant information that is relevant to their fit with our Family Medicine residency program. In conjunction with the Postgraduate Program Director and Recruitment Coordinator, the File Reviewer is responsible for applying a standardized score algorithm to applicant files, in order to create a summarized score sheet for each file. The files and scoring summary are then made available to the Program Directors of the Family Medicine Department who will be responsible for further assessment of the candidate files for program ranking.
