  1. Thank you @GH0ST! And care to elaborate @freewheeler? Just not the specialty for you or bad experience(s) in the past?
  2. HI! Anyone have any experiences with PHPM electives across Canada? Would love to hear about them - what went well, if 2 vs 3, 4 weeks were enough, and approaching preceptors for a letter. Thanks!
  3. Sorry - to clarify I received the offer when they were initially sent out

  9. Hi Priscilla, Thanks for your response! Where do the resources for PRIME come from? Are they sourced from a particular institute (i.e. the institute for healthcare improvement)? Also I'm not sure if you can answer this question but after you've learnt the methodology and such, are there a lot of clinical QI research projects that one could get involved in as well? (I.e. has anyone participated in a project with I-Equip: http://www.niagarahealth.on.ca/en/i-equip?) Are there any grant/studentship competitions for QI projects?
  10. Hi! I was wondering how the opportunities are in Niagra re: quality improvement initiatives. I heard about PRIME in the orientation session (which sounds super intriguing) and I know Brock U has an amazing IHI OS chapter. Personally, in my home province, there's been a big "discord" between what it means to implement QI "practices" and what QI "research" is...so, I was wondering if any students can give me some examples of what QI looks like in the Niagra area, examples if anyone has gotten involved in any QI projects, and the atmosphere/culture surrounding QI in the hospitals. Edit: also, is there a possibility of doing an enrichment year doing a QI project instead of research? Thanks in advance! I was 100% dead set for ranking the Hamilton campus first, but now I'm not so sure.
