Description: Building on the first and second year, this course will focus on the many personal, social, professional, legal and ethical considerations inherent to medical practice. Students will continue to develop in their roles as communicators, scholars and professionals but will develop their roles as collaborators, advocates and health managers. The 8 month Comprehensive Community Clerkship (CCC) in a Northern Ontario community creates opportunities to support the development of professional attitudes and values related to health and wellness, illness and disease, and the physician’s role in the lives of individuals, families, and communities. In addition, the course gives students the opportunity to experience the application of ethical principles and concepts to issues that will arise throughout their clinical encounters. Students will complete reflective exercises and formal presentations to develop skills related to the critical appraisal of evidence, the use of information technology, and the development of strategies to support lifelong and self-directed learning.
