Medical Trainees

Medical Residents rotating through Endocrinology

All residents and medical students who are going to be rotating through Endocrinology at the Hamilton Health Sciences should contact Dr. Harper's secretary (905-540-3560) the week prior to the start of their rotation.  Ideally, a one-on-one orientation with Dr. Harper either in-person or by telephone can then be arranged prior to the start of the rotation.  When this is not possible residents can orient themselves by downloading the orientation package below but they should also try to arrange a clinic with Dr. Harper as early as possible in the rotation for orientation purposes.  

Just click to download the following orientation package to orient you to your upcoming Endocrine rotation:

Endocrine Journal Club

All residents rotating through endocrinology will be expected to present at the Endocrine Journal Club on the 3rd week of the month.  One of the staff endocrinologists will supervise you and help you pick an appropriate paper to present.  Journal Club instructions and a schedule for the supervising staff endocrinologists can be downloaded below:
