Medical Students at Ridgeview

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”?

A resident is a doctor who has finished medical school and is taking extra training to specialize. They work under the supervision of a licensed physician for two additional years before beginning to practice Family Medicine independently. Residents can order tests, write prescriptions, and manage most cases on their own, but may ask the licensed physician for help with difficult cases.

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?

Occasionally, your physician will have a doctor-in-training working under his or her supervision. The staff will inform you of this when you are shown to an examination room. If you do not wish to be seen by the doctor-in-training, just let a staff member know. Your comfort is our priority.

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.
