In the clinic or on the ward, we talk about symptoms and diagnoses and management. But what would we talk about around the campfire? Our stories!
The Office of Physician Workforce Strategy, in partnership with Faculty Affairs, invite learners and residents to join us for a virtual campfire. Let’s chat…about the “back story” of our faculty – who they are, what they do, and why they do it.
What brought them to Northern Ontario? Why do they stay? What do they love about their work?
Bring your hot chocolate, toque, and cozy blanket.
Pull up a chair, rock, or log. Bring your “device” and join us in virtual conversation.
Date: Thursday, January 12, 2023 from 8:30-9:30 p.m.
Featured Faculty: Dr. Jonathan DellaVedova – Pediatrician, Sault Ste. Marie ON
Host: Dr. Sarah Newbery, MD- Associate Dean, Physician Workforce Strategy

On October 21 and 22, 2022, we welcomed learners, residents and their families from across Ontario to our 2nd Annual Practice Management and Community Exploration conference. The Finding Your True North: Planning for Your Future Career virtual conference had a focus on planning:
- For undergraduate learners: planning electives
- For postgraduate learners: planning future work and locuming
- For partners and families: what to plan for as your partner/family member moves through their education
- For all- financial planning, including debt management, investment, incentives, and how to think through family planning in the context of medical education and career.
2021 was the inaugural year for our annual Get Ready to Go & Make a Difference practice management and community exploration conference and job fair. This conference aims to help connect learners and residents with future learning and work opportunities. Recruiters and physicians from a number of communities across Northern Ontario attend to share employment opportunities and information about their respective communities and work places. During the first conference, there were virtual opportunities to network in chatrooms and hear about the unique experiences communities and practices have to offer.
