Ridgeview Medical Centre is a teaching site for residents and students from the University of Calgary, Cumming School of Medicine.
It is an honour and a privilege to be asked to help train the doctors of the future.
What is a “Resident”?
What is a “Clinical Clerk”?
A clinical clerk is a medical student who is in their final year of medical school. Clinical Clerks will do placements in various specialties throughout their final year of schooling, prior to graduating and entering the residency program for their chosen specialty. Clinical placements are especially important for clerks, allowing them to gain hands-on patient care experience. Clinical Clerks may initiate your appointment, but you will always be seen by a licensed physician prior to your appointment ending.
What does this mean for you?
The doctor-in-training will ALWAYS review your condition and treatment plan with your doctor. Should you have any questions or concerns regarding medical students, feel free to ask your physician.
