Section of Residents

The Section of Residents (SoR) consists of residents from across Canada’s 17 family medicine programs. The Section is represented by the SoR Council, a national committee composed of R1 and R2 representatives elected by each program to address issues relating to family medicine education from a resident’s perspective.  

The purpose of the Section of Residents is to shape the national perspective on family medicine education and training in Canada from the resident viewpoint. You can learn more about the Council by watching our videoor reading our brochure.

First-year (R1) resident Council members are elected by their programs in July when they enter residency and stay for a two-year term. You can learn more about the role by reviewing the position description and Terms of Reference.

Be sure to reach out to your local representatives and make your voice heard! If you need help connecting with them, please email [email protected]
