Thank you for agreeing to be a Resident Project Supervisor! We appreciate the time and effort it takes to fulfill this role and have provided some links/resources to help guide you.

As a Project Supervisor you will work with the Dalhousie Family Medicine Resident to assist with development and overarching completion of the resident’s scholarly activity through their resident project. You will help support and counsel residents on the content of their project (Resident Project Supervisor Job description). You will be supported by your local site Resident Project Coordinators.

The Resident Project Guide is a thorough and complete description of all aspects related to resident projects. All residents have a copy of the Resident Project Guide, which is also found on Brightspace. All projects are required to adhere to the Resident Project Guide. As a Project Supervisor, you may want to familiarize yourself with the sections titled Project Types, Project Format, and Guide on How to Organize Resident Projects Based on Type.

You will be required to complete and submit three forms on one45 (Form II, III, IV). Your resident will provide you with the content for these forms.  We have attached a document to summarize how the forms are facilitated (see Dalhousie Family Medicine Resident Project Forms I-IV (one 45 Tasks)).
