GENERAL DESCRIPTION

Since July 2014, CLSC Parc-Extension is a new family teaching unit able to accommodate full-time family medicine residents.  Education is multidisciplinary and can be customized. The team is small, and the members include family physicians, nurse practitioners, clinical nurses, social workers, interpreters and administrative staff, all working in a collaborative and welcoming atmosphere. There are also several specialists (psychiatrist, pediatrician, pedopsychiatrist) involved in teaching and modeling shared care clinics.

The residents have their practice base at the CLSC, with academic core teaching at CLSC Côte-des-Neiges. Hospital rotations are at the McGill University Health Center Hospitals, including the new Glen Campus Site and Jewish General Hospital.

CLSC Parc-Extension services the territory of the East End of Ville Mont-Royal, North End of Mile-End and the heart of Parc-Extension. The clientele varies widely socio-economical, and have heterogeneous background, especially around migratory experience. Walk-in services are open to all, every weekday. The Parc-Extension team has an expertise in pediatric care, mother-child health, palliative care, geriatrics and global health. The teaching office has a close collaboration with Maison Bleue Parc-Extension and residents are exposed and implicated in a multidisciplinary care model to target vulnerable patients.
