The Pembroke Regional hospital has 105 beds, access to many specialists including an ICU, imaging including CT, MRI. The size of PRH allows us to do rotations such as obstetrics, ER, Geriatrics, Psychiatry, Hospitalist and Internal medicine within Pembroke, matter of fact the only rotation requiring traveling is Pediatrics wards done at CHEO in Ottawa. No more living out of suitcases!
Our family physician preceptors practice comprehensive family practice. Exposing trainees to full-spectrum cradle to grave care. Residents will get many hands-on opportunities, with both office procedures and hospital procedures.
The curriculum is structured as a half- horizontal curriculum detailed below. This mix maximizes the opportunities for comprehensive care within family medicine, with some block-based rotations that benefit from some from more intensive exposure.
Here you will have the chance to build on your skills and think about creating the type of practice that puts your interests and professional goals first while guaranteeing a lifestyle of your choosing. You will discover that a stimulating team approach to health care is at the forefront of our work within our practice environment.
After graduation, locum and full practice opportunities available and offer an excellent opportunity to learn more about our medical groups and our community at large.

New for 2021, we are offering increased remote exposure in Barry’s Bay and Deep River. If you match to Pembroke, you can select this to be part of your training and will spend 3 blocks in both first and second year in one of those communities. Their hospitals are run by family doctors in small communities and will provide added remote skills to make you comfortable to serve the needs of Canada’s very underserviced remote communities.
