    Program Description


    The SRPC mentorship program is a pilot program that started in 2021 and aims to connect medical students to rural physicians and residents from across the country to allow career exploration, guidance and increased understanding of the scope of rural practice.  We have over 65 mentors ready to help support your rural path.

    Goals:

    • Connecting students to rural physicians across Canada
    • Career exploration and guidance
    • Increase understanding of the scope of rural practice
    • Provide learning opportunities outside of the formal academic environment
    • Contribute to the current and growing need of rural physicians in Canada

    Your Role As a Mentor

    As a mentor with SRPC, medical students will connect with you through the SRPC office manager. Once you are connected, there will be flexibility in how you set up your mentor-mentee relationships, which can be tailored on an individual basis. This may include answering a few quick questions, setting up a longitudinal mentorship plan, or organizing shadowing experiences (public health guidelines permitting).

    Expectations in your role as a mentor may include:

    • Sharing experiences of rural practice with mentees for the purpose of career exploration and guidance
    • Being honest and open regarding the rewards/challenges to rural medicine
    • Forming a plan and setting expectations with your mentee regarding frequency of meetings and meeting platform to be used
    • Sharing appropriate resources
    • Recognizing that advice given, while extremely valuable, does not substitute for MD program-specific mentorship and supports


    * By registering as a mentor for this program, you consent to allowing the SRPC to share the information you have provided to mentees that register for the program.  As a mentor, you may contact the SRPC at any time and have your name removed.

    ** Mentors must be SRPC members to participate in this program.

    (Max Participants: 20 (All Member levels))

    Friday, April 19 - 14:40 - 17:00
        
    Description:
    RELEVANCE. Knowledge and competencies in the examination of the ENT-Neck are essential in generalist practice. However, several publications in the UK, US, and Canada have underscored the inadequate focus on the ENT-neck in undergraduate and postgraduate medical education. Moreover, the shift to online education and virtual patient care during the pandemic has decreased the opportunities for hands-on practice of physical examination techniques.

    WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION. We developed a workshop focused on learning physical examination techniques of the ENT-neck. The workshop will consist of the following: (a) a 45-minute lecture and live demonstration of PE techniques and relevant findings; (b) a 75-minute hands-on practice. Regular otoscopes and video-otoscopes will be available for practice. The participants will be divided into groups; the workshop facilitators will assist and provide feedback.

    LEARNING STRATEGIES. The workshop is designed with several strategies for learning. Relevance is established by using only topics listed in CFPC's Assessment Objectives for Certification in Family Medicine (2020). Handouts with photos of examination techniques and anatomical areas will be provided. Immediate feedback on examination techniques and findings will be provided.

    AUDIENCE. This workshop will appeal mainly to medical students and residents. However, some practitioners may be interested as well.

    Objectives:
    At the end of the workshop, the participants will have:

    1. Reviewed the techniques of and common findings in physical examination (PE) of the ear, nose, oral cavity, throat (oropharynx only), and neck (ENT-Neck).

    2. Watched a live demonstration of the PE of the ENT-Neck.

    3. Practiced techniques of PE of the ENT-Neck on another participant. To allow immediate feedback of otoscopy and anterior rhinoscopy techniques, the participants will use a video-otoscope attached to a laptop. To teach the depth and pressure of palpation, the presenters will palpate consenting participants.

    Note: PE of the ENT-Neck will need the consent of the person being examined. It is recommended that participants register in pairs or register with a partner in mind.
