Welcome New Surgical Residents
A fantastic cohort of new residents has beaten the competition to enter the Gallie
Program in July 2007. I wish we had room to print their CVs and recommendation letters!
Our six entry level programs continue to expand, as does the job market for our
residents at the end of their training. The expertise and enthusiasm of their teachers
and resident colleagues and our performance at accreditation in April 2007 promises
that our residents will be the best taught ever.
Forty-two residents have entered the Department - 30 male and 12 female. Thirty-three
come to us from Canadian programs, two through the Ontario International Medical
Graduate stream (new Canadians who have finished med school outside Canada and will
practice in Ontario), five through the Clerkship Match (Canadian-born doctors who
left Canada to pursue their MD elsewhere and have returned to Canada to train),
and two are "visa trainees", who will return to their home countries following training.
What a great gift this diverse group of bright young minds brings to our Department.
Welcome new residents!
