One of the core values of the Moose & Squirrel Medical Clinic is medical teaching. All five of our physicians have been granted academic appointments with the Departments of Family Medicine at both the University of Alberta and the University of Calgary. The MSMC has developed an outstanding reputation with both Alberta medical schools, and is considered to be one of the pre-eminent clinics in rural Alberta for teaching medical students, residents, and other learners in the health professions.

In 2014 our clinic was recognized by the Professional Association of Resident Physicians of Alberta for our commitment to medical education and resident well-being.

Medical students are university students who are in medical school and have not yet received their MD. The final two years of the MD program involve caring for patients at clinics and hospitals under a doctor’s supervision.

Resident physicians are doctors who have received their MD, and are enrolled in a two-year program to become nationally certified as specialists in Family Medicine. Residents assume an increasing amount of responsibility for patient care as they progress through their two years of specialized training.

We teach medical students and Family Medicine residents from the University of Calgary and the University of Alberta and often have one or more medical learners working with us in the clinic. It is important that medical students and residents have an opportunity to develop their skills and knowledge by seeing patients every day.

During your visit, part or all of your care may be provided by a student or resident (male or female), but your care will always be overseen by your physician.

The following is a list of the medical students, family medicine residents, nurse practitioner students and other learners whom we have taught at the MSMC since opening in 2013.
