Undergraduate MD Program: Learning Sites

Third-Year Core Clinical Rotation in Family Medicine

During your third-year core clinical rotation in family medicine, your practical knowledge is applied in clinical work at one of our learning sites. We offer a wide range of settings at which to do your clerkship, from urban to rural communities. Learn more about our learning sites below.


  • Students will be contacted by their academies directly and provided with information regarding site selection.
  • Rural Ontario Medical Program (ROMP) placements are available in Barrie, Collingwood, Kawartha Lakes, Midland, New Tecumseth, Orangeville and Orillia, but not all communities are available in all blocks. If you are matched to ROMP, you will be informed of your community after the match. If you have questions about ROMP sites, please contact: Dr. Chung Kit (Jacky) Lai, the ROMP clerkship rural liaison.
  • Additional rural and distant placements will be available at Newmarket and Markham.
  • For general clerkship questions, contact: the Clerkship Coordinator at the DFCM.

For more information regarding each ROMP learning site, visit the ROMP website.
