Our first resident on the podcast, and the bar has been set. Dr. Kristine Johnson is a culture changer in the making and imparts to Jocelyne and Catherine how family medicine is not a “lesser specialty”. She also gives us the low down on Certificates of Added Competency (CACs) from a resident perspective and encourages all of us, if and when we are ready to travel again, to go to Melbourne for some heavenly coffee!
The GP2B podcast welcomes a passionate Family Medicine preceptor, Dr. Trevor Day (@DrTrevorDay), to the podcast. He challenges Jocelyne, Aiden, and our listeners to choose courage over comfort in their future practice, and proves that teleportation is the only superpower worth having.

This rockin’ inner city family doc goes over her impressive resume, including being part of the PEER team, her family medicine research interests, and smoked pickles!
Aiden and Catherine put the Director of Assessment and Selection for the U of A's Family Medicine Residency Program in the hot seat. Dr. Michelle Morros gives the inside scoop about how to put your best foot forward during the CaRMS process.
