2nd Year Summer Elective - Geriatrics
Nursing homes in Ontario are homes to people who frequently have multiple and complex medical problems and needs. Most of these people are pleased to see medical learners and contribute to their education; thus providing a wonderful opportunity for learners to see, examine, and help people with significant pathology (strong physical signs/findings).
This elective is serving to consolidate the learners' skills in these vital areas of clinical history taking, physical examination, and management program development.
This elective is open to all 2nd year Ontario medical learners (successfully completed their 2nd year). This placement is for four weeks. Some communities participating in this elective require that the learner has a vehicle.
