Palliative Care has been incorporated into Physicianship and, as such, we are responsible for producing scenarios on History Taking and Compassionate Communication as well as a lecture and scenarios on Communication and Breaking Bad News.
Transition to clinical practice (TCP) starts in month 19 of medical school. Palliative Care is responsible for giving 3 lectures during this six-month period. Under Comprehensive Health, we give lectures on "Last Days of Life", "Impact of Cancer on Families" and "Caring for Dying Patients at Home".
Core Clerkship consumes all of Year 3 of med school. During this time, we give lectures on "Palliative Care Emergencies" and "Cancer Pain Management". We also have a full Palliative Care Recall Day focusing on how and why clinical sciences and the interdisciplinary team-based approach to care intersect in palliative care.
Third-year and fourth-year students are strongly encouraged to pursue a clinical clerkship rotation in palliative care. Students wishing to complete a rotation at one of these sites should consult the Electives Program.
Palliative Care McGill is honored to offer the Winifred Ross Award in Palliative Care, award annually to one third-year and one fourth-year student. For application details, please click here.
