“At St. Michael’s Hospital, we are extremely proud of our commitment to the educational experience of our postgraduate medical trainees. We have established committees of physician education leads from each department, as well as a council of chief and senior residents, both aimed at ensuring that the voice of our postgraduate medical trainees is heard and represented within the hospital. Our Student Centre is truly interprofessional, which allows leadership from all student groups to join together with the common goal of making St. Michael’s Hospital an exceptional place to learn!
We know that postgraduate medical trainees work very hard to learn, and to provide an important service to our hospital. We are proud to say that one of our main goals is to continue to enhance the culture of wellness amongst postgraduate medical trainees.”
