This flexible fellowship is designed to meet the needs of learners with a range of backgrounds and goals. Learners may participate as clinical fellows or as research fellows. Participants may tailor the program, but there are typically three options:

Academic Program

Fellows in the Academic Program attend education sessions and are required to complete an academic project. This program does not involve patient care.

Successful candidates will receive a Certificate in Resuscitation and Reanimation from Queen’s University. Physicians currently working in a clinical area with significant resuscitation activity may complete the academic program and apply for credit of their clinical work to receive a Fellowship in Resuscitation and Reanimation from Queen’s University

One-Year Clinical Program:

Fellows in the Clinical Fellowship program divide their time equally between fellowship activities and clinical activities in their base specialty. They are required to attend weekly education sessions and participate in Kingston General Hospital’s critical care response team (RACE), trauma team, and cardiac arrest team. They will also teach resuscitation skills to a wide range of learners. Fellows who are concurrently enrolled in a residency program will have clinical rotations in critical care and resuscitation-based ultrasonography and are required to complete an academic project.

This program is particularly appropriate for residents in their fourth year of an Emergency Medicine program or their first year after successful completion of residency training in Emergency Medicine. Residents in internal medicine, anesthesia as well as other programs are also invited to apply. Successful candidates will receive their Fellowship in Resuscitation and Reanimation from Queen’s University.

Two-Year Clinical Program

Learners with an interest in more advanced academic development participate in the program for two years, with the majority of the second year being spent on a research or educational project. Successful candidates will publish their project and will receive their Fellowship in Resuscitation and Reanimation from Queen’s University.

Rotations

Each year of the Resuscitation and Reanimation program is divided into thirteen four-week blocks. This includes nine blocks of Emergency Medicine/ RACE, two blocks of critical care, and one block of research. There is also a longitudinal resuscitation-focused ultrasound curriculum. There is also a block for an elective which can include any special interest, for example an additional block of critical care, toxicology, trauma, or a transport medicine elective with ORNGE.

Admission Requirements

Applicants from emergency medicine are typically in their fifth year of a five year program. The program is also open to residents in other programs (internal medicine, anesthesiology, etc.) as long as this is approved by the resident’s home program. We also accept applications from practicing physicians in Canada (with or without formal CCFP-EM training) as well as international graduates who have completed their specialty training in their home country.

Dr. John Adamich

John completed his medical school training in Toronto before moving to Kingston for his family medicine residency and CCFP-EM fellowship. He grew up in Barrie, Ontario and enjoys living in Kingston as the waterfront reminds him of home. He is completing the resuscitation fellowship with the intention of building teaching skills in simulation and crisis resource management while simultaneously developing his educational dossier.

In his free time he enjoys camping, playing soccer or ultimate frisbee, snowboarding, running and being let down annually by the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Dr. Faisal Alkhadra

Assistant Professor Imam Abdulrahman bin Faisal University, Saudi Arabia.
Faisal was born in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Recently married to the most wonderful wife in the whole world. He studied medicine at King Faisal University, Dammam. Then joined the Saudi Board of Emergency Medicine. In the Emergency Department, he is interested in resuscitation, simulation and ultrasound. 

Faisal is a coffee addict so when things go wrong just grab him a cup of coffee!!
Emergency Medicine: When Seconds Count, We are There First.

Dr. Arwa AlMadani

Arwa completed her Emergency medicine board in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. She crossed countries to Kingston to finish her fellowship in Resuscitation and Reanimation to develop her skills in critical management and obtain knowledge in education & simulation to pass it to the trainees back home. 

Her favorite quote in medicine

“To cure sometimes, to relieve often, to comfort always” by Edward Livingston. 

Arwa loves to travel, walk and explore new areas, a good cup of coffee is always a hug to the brain. 

Dr. James Gould

James is currently a practising Emergency Physician and Assistant Professor in the Department of Emergency Medicine at Dalhousie University in Halifax NS. His current academic contribution, interest and research is in the realm of Resuscitation and use of Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) in the ED. He took on the Resuscitation Fellowship in hopes to gather knowledge and experience to develop a similar Fellowship at Dalhousie.

Outside of medicine James enjoys spending time with his family and their dog and getting out on the golf course. 

 

Dr. Genevieve Lacroix

Genevieve completed her Emergency and Critical Care training in Quebec city before moving to Kingston to start the resuscitation fellowship. The next year will be a great opportunity for her to learn more about the organization of rapid response teams (RRT) as she will lead the RRT incoming project in the new hospital currently under construction in Quebec city.

 

Dr. Colin Laverty

Colin Laverty is a military physician working in CBRN medicine. He works part time as an emergency physician at QHC Belleville and Trenton, and as a clinical associate in Critical Care Medicine at Lakeridge Health Oshawa and Sunnybrook HSC Trauma Services. His research interests are in prehospital medicine, CBRN medicine, and TBI.

Global Emergency Medicine Fellowship

 

Dr. Susan Bartels

Program Director, Global Emergency Medicine Fellowship

Email Dr. Bartels

Overview

The Queen’s University Global Emergency Medicine Fellowship is designed to prepare future leaders in academic international emergency medicine by providing training in emergency disaster response, humanitarian aid, international research and emergency medical systems.

The two-year fellowship is tailored to a Fellow’s individual interests but is typically divided between a Masters of Public Health (MPH) degree, fieldwork, international emergency medicine training courses, research and clinical work as an attending physician in the emergency department.

Consideration will also be given to individuals completing some of the fellowship within their FRCPC residency. In this stream, Fellows will have the option to work clinically as residents within the Queen's University post-graduate program.

 

Masters of Public Health Degree

For Fellows who do not already hold an MPH degree, the Fellowship will include an MPH at Queen’s (or elsewhere as pre-arranged with the Program Director). Coursework for the degree will be taken throughout the two-year fellowship and will occur concurrently with clinical shifts, other academic courses and field experience abroad. For Fellow’s already holding an MPH degree, one-year fellowships may be considered.

International Curriculum

The international emergency curriculum includes a choice of courses within North America and abroad on a range of topics including:

1) Humanitarian/disaster response,
2) International study design/methodologies, and
3) Emergency medicine system development 

Fellows also participate in the monthly global health research lab meetings and in other global health activities at Queen’s University including those offered by the Office of Global Health (schedule permitting).

 

International Field Work

Up to four to five months may be spent working abroad.  Fieldwork is arranged by the Fellow and supervised by the fellowship director. Fellows should take a leadership role during field placements with each experience designed to increase their knowledge base and opportunity to practice acquired skills.

Research

Fellows are required to complete at least one research project during their fellowship (suitable for publication in a peer reviewed journal). Fellows may develop their own project or take an active role in an ongoing project at Queen’s University. Fellows will be strongly encouraged to write a global health-related grant throughout the course of their training.

 

Clinical Medicine

Clinical Medicine: In order to solidify their clinical skills, Fellows work part-time clinically in the emergency department of kingston General Hospital and at the Urgent Care Centre of Hotel Dieu Hospital. There is an expectation for Fellows to work an average of eight clinical shifts per six-week scheduling block. For those at the Faculty level, additional shifts may be picked up as timing permits when the Fellow is in Kingston. These additional shifts are remunerated at the departmental rate for clinical adjuncts. While working clinically, Fellows at the Faculty level supervise emergency medicine and off-service residents as well as medical students.

Point-of-Care Ultrasound Fellowship

           

Dr. Joey Newbigging          

Emergency Medicine POCUS Lead

POCUS is integral to modern emergency medicine practice and will be an integral part of resident training starting from week one. By third year we expect all residents to be competent and able to independently perform all types of diagnostic and procedural POCUS.

The emphasis on POCUS as an essential skill begins in our Summer Bootcamp Series. Every year all residents participate in a POCUS course on core applications (free fluid abdomen, subxiphoid cardiac, abdominal aorta, basic lung and first trimester pregnancy). This is followed with by-weekly 1:2 teacher:learner supervised scanning shifts.

In the summer of the PGY2 year, before the ICU rotation, residents complete a mini-horizontal central line POCUS course emphasizing repetitive deliberate practice in POCUS procedural needle guidance. Every year are 3-4 POCUS workshops for the entire residency program that feature advanced applications (eg. advanced cardiac, nerve blocks, gallbladder, DVT, renal etc). Senior residents are involved as instructors for these workshops.

All residents complete an Advanced POCUS rotation in their PGY2 or PGY3 year. This rotation consists of supervised scanning shifts with POCUS fellowship trained faculty. Residents will develop POCUS competence in gallbladder, advanced cardiac, lung, IVC, DVT, MSK, soft tissue, nerve blocks, vascular access and POCUS protocols. We have regular EM POCUS rounds, multidisciplinary QSonic POCUS rounds, a breakfast POCUS Journal Club and an annual Sonogames.

Residents will have ample opportunity to teach POCUS to other learners such as medical students and more junior residents. After gaining competence in core applications, they are eligible to challenge the CPOCUS Independent Practitioner examination (www.cpocus.ca). On completion of residency all residents will have a POCUS portfolio of all of their studies completed during residency. Both the Hotel Dieu Urgent Care Centre and Kingston General Hospital have POCUS machines with an assortment of probes to allow for ample practice while you are working clinically and are linked with image archiving and feedback software.

Queen’s EM is a POCUS forward program with a faculty culture that emphasises POCUS use in all aspects of patient care.

Dr.  Sarah Maxwell

Dr. Maxwell graduated from the University of Toronto medical school and completed her residency in Anaesthesiology at Queen's University in 2020.  She is excited to be the inaugural POCUS fellow and would like to use her POCUS training to improve patient care in the perioperative period and focus on ultrasound guided regional anesthesia.  After her fellowship, she is interested in translating skills learned to be an educator for all things POCUS for trainees at Queen's University. 

 

Dr. Christine Hanna

I’m thrilled to be returning to Queen’s – now as a POCUS fellow and Attending Physician in Emergency Medicine. Since graduating from Queen’s for both my CCFP and my CCFP(EM), I worked in a busy community Emergency Department and spent the last six months as the Medical Director and Chief of Emergency Medicine at Quinte Health Care. During this time, I was also working as a Family Physician locally, in Kingston.

Alongside my POCUS fellowship, I will be working towards completing my Master’s of Clinical Education from the University of Edinburgh in Scotland.

Before coming to Queen’s, I lived and worked in the United Kingdom, where I attended the University of Birmingham and did some postgraduate training around the West and East Midlands. During my time in England, my colleagues and I created a national teaching course, which is still highly attended today.

My interests include POCUS (obviously!) both in the Emergency Department, but also in other clinical settings as well as clinical/medical education.

When I’m not at work, I’m going on fun adventures with my husband and our very lively labradoodle, Leo! 

Dr. Tatiana Vukadinovic

Tatiana is a recent CCFP-EM grad from the Queens Program and is working part-time in the area. She spent most of her life in the mountains of western Canada and while she misses the view and fresh powder, has been enjoying exploring what the Kingston area has to offer.  She is excited to work and learn from such a diverse group of co-fellows and develop skills in leadership, resuscitation, and crisis management.

She can be found skiing, cycling, training the new dog, or searching for the best coffee Kingston has to offer.

  7. Accreditation Systems
  8. Inter-professional Education
  9. Educational Research Methodology and Scholarship
  10. Cognitive Psychology in Medical Education
  11. EM Faculty Development
  12. Program Evaluation

Master of Health Professions Education Degree (MHPE) 

For Fellows who do not already have an MHPE, MMEd, or equivalent degree, the fellowship will include enrollment in the MHPE degree at Queen’s (or at another academic institution as pre-arranged with the fellowship Program Director). Coursework for the degree may be started prior to the Fellowship with an aim to complete the degree during the fellowship, or may be started during the fellowship and completed beyond the end of the fellowship. Coursework is mostly virtual and may occur concurrently with clinical shifts, scholarship work, and teaching and learning responsibilities. 

Area of Dedicated Focus & Research Scholarship 

It is expected that fellows will select one specific aspect of medical education to serve as an area of concentration.  Fellows  will be partnered with a faculty supervisor with specific expertise in the Fellow’s desired area, and then design supplemental activities to facilitate the development of additional expertise and competence. 

Fellows are required to complete at least one research project (generally in their focus area) during their fellowship and have it submitted for publication in a peer-reviewed journal. Fellows will be encouraged to develop their own project(s) and will also have opportunities to participate in ongoing faculty projects at Queen’s University with the fellowship program faculty. Fellows will be strongly encouraged to write a medical education-related grant throughout the course of their training and are expected to do deliver a presentation at a relevant conference (eg. Canadian Association of Emergency Physicians, Canadian Conference on Medical Education, International Conference on Medical Education, etc.) 

Clinical Medicine

During the 12-month fellowship period, Fellows will work either as EM senior residents (eg. Core & Transition to Practice stages) or as an attending physician either at a regional hospital within the department of emergency medicine, or as an attending physician within the emergency department at the Kingston Health Sciences Centre (KHSC - Kingston General Hospital and Urgent Care Centre of Hotel Dieu Hospital sites). While working clinically, fellows will be responsible for supervising emergency medicine trainees, off-service residents, and  medical students based on their level of experience & training. 

Fellows are expected to work an average of approximately 8 clinical shifts per month to maintain their clinical skills. Additional shifts and/or working in an alternate location may be considered and needs to be approved by the fellowship Program Director.

For practicing EM physicians already working in community emergency departments, strong consideration will be given to facilitating clinical work outside of the Kingston area. 

Assessment, Evaluation & Feedback

The Fellowship Program Director will meet with Fellows regularly (no less than monthly) throughout the year and complete a periodic performance assessment (based on all available performance data) on a quarterly basis. Fellowship program faculty will assess Fellows’ teaching/instructional performance, along with trainee evaluations, and all data will be collated electronically (using the Elentra IT platform) following each session.

For Fellows who are post-EM certification working clinical shifts within the KHSC Department of Emergency Medicine,  clinical evaluations will be facilitated by the Department of Emergency Medicine Head. For Fellows still completing their residency training, clinical evaluations will be tabulated by a designated EM faculty physician to assist ongoing Competence Committee performance reviews.
