The New Brunswick College of Family Physicians wants to make going to the doctor’s office a comfortable experience for children.
We are pleased to provide a $300 grant to 5 medical clinics/office in New Brunswick each year to help facilitate this. During this Clinic, children are familiarized with medical tests and procedures regularly performed during a visit to the family doctor. Children bring their favourite teddy bear and practice these tests/procedures on their little patient.
Application and selection:
The selected medical clinics/office will be chosen at random. The Teddy Bear Clinic must then be held in the next 12 months, and no retroactive requests will be accepted. We also ask that short report of the Teddy Bear Clinic is sent to the College thereafter. The medical clinic/office must have at least 1 physician member of our College.
Nominations are due by April 14, 2017
