If you are not a current Queen’s medical student, please visit http://meds.queensu.ca/undergraduate/visiting_medical_electives for more information about applying for a visiting elective.

Due to the limited number of elective spots that we have we give preferential status to students in the following order: Queen's University, other Canadian Universities, and medical students from other medical schools. We realize that our elective opportunities are limited. If you are interested in applying to Queen's University Family Medicine for residency we want to reassure you that we look favorably on a Family Medicine elective(s) done anywhere.

Please contact the Residency Program Assistant, Undegraduate and Accommodations (Carla Evaristo, undergraduatefm@dfm.queensu.ca), if you have any questions.
