Queen Square Family Health Team has been providing comprehensive medical care to the citizens of Brampton for over 35 years. We have now expanded to a collegial group of 17, many of whom were family medicine residents in our practice.
We have a wide spectrum of interests including women and children’s health, obstetrical care, geriatrics, palliative care, emergency medicine, forensic medicine, office procedures, as well as a full spectrum of primary care. Our physicians continue to work as regional coroners as well as administrators and educators at multiple levels of health care. Patients in our practice not only have access to comprehensive family medicine, but also enjoy on-site after hours care each weekday evening and urgent care with our own on call physicians on weekends and holidays.
The extensive patient population provides an excellent learning environment where our enthusiastic physician teachers can mentor our family medicine residents in a broad range of primary care experiences. Our office houses a fully integrated electronic medical record, in addition to the intranet within our Family Health Team.
The Family Health Team is a multi-disciplinary team, where our patients get to work with dieticians, nurses, nurse practitioners, a pharmacist, a psychologist, social workers, according to their clinical needs. The residents get the opportunities to work with the allied health professional in any of our multiple programs, such as Breastfeeding Program, Smoking Cessation, Post-Hospital Discharge, Geriatrics etc.
In addition to the experience present within our office, residents have the opportunity to work with our preceptors in their other settings, like the Ontario Correctional Institute and Holland Christian Homes. Our physicians run the on-site clinic, allowing patients access to their physician when travel becomes more difficult. We also have three physicians who provide nursing home care at Grace and Faith Manor.
Queen Square Family Health Team have had extensive experience teaching residents for the past 17 years with McMaster University and the University of Toronto. The physicians and support staff of Queen Square Doctors Family Health Team warmly welcome our future McMaster Family Medicine Residents.
