About the South East Site

The South East Family Medicine Residency Training Program is the newest addition to the University of Saskatchewan's cadre of exemplary FM residency programs.

Become a competent, skilled, and knowledgeable rural family physician. Benefit from an expansive faculty located in numerous communities and the vast array of supplemental educational and clinical experiences. Enjoy a low learner to faculty ration, "be 1 in 10!", when you connect with a home base community, and maintain that continuity throughout your training, in one of our 3 equally qualified and equipped home base sites. Enhance your learning with additional experience in any of the 7 smaller supporting sites. The South East program is administratively based out of Moosomin, Saskatchewan. Humboldt, Weyburn, and Moosomin make up the three home base sites, with two resident spots in Moosomin and one spot each in Humboldt and Weyburn.

Don't worry! You will not be away from your home base training site much, as extra and scheduled experiences are both around a 30-60 minute commute with no city traffic or public transport to navigate in the rural areas.

University of Saskatchewan family medicine programs are family approved! The horizontal integration design of the program allows for flexibility in scheduling, so you can be there when your family needs you most. Physician resident supports through RDoS ensure you and your family's wellness is supported. 

Emergency care exposure is integrated throughout training in order to help you become comfortable and competent managing acute patients so that you are able to practice family medicine in any community size upon completion of residency. 

While the program is centered in family medicine, experiences with specialists and family physicians with extra skills are utilized to achieve the full range of competencies. Specialty rotations include obstetrics (with integrated neonatal care where possible), pediatrics, psychiatry, internal medicine, surgery, and anesthesia. For the most part, these rotations are based out of larger regional or tertiary centres (Yorkton, Estevan, Saskatoon, Regina) so that residents can have the patient volume needed in a short amount of time to gain the relevant competencies.

Though our 3 home bases are all considered rural communities, rotations in smaller rural communities also take place in your second year of training. These communities include Watrous, Wynyard, Indian Head, Esterhazy, Melville, Redvers and Strasbourg. Each community is unique and has their own strengths. Residents will be able to indicate their preferance as to where they would like to go.

Following the CaRMS match, residents will be asked their preferred home base sites and an internal match will occur. Though distanced geographically, residents will attend the same academic half days and opportunities for collegiality between residents will be created and encouraged.
