Module Editor Eleanor Colledge
I am a family doctor and completed my training and residency in Toronto. After graduating, I spent time working overseas and then locuming in Toronto and northern Ontario before joining an academic family health team in Toronto. I currently split my time between caring for my practice, teaching residents and medical students, and supporting faculty development at our site and within our department.
My first exposure to FMPE was during one of my locums working in Sioux Lookout where I was invited to join one of their monthly meetings. Sitting in a cozy living room with food and drink on offer and lively conversation about the topic at hand I thought—wow—this is my kind of learning!
Not long after I was invited to participate in a roundtable, and I went on from this to become an author. For many years I have loved the challenge of digging into a clinical topic and working with a passionate group of colleagues on creating a module that we hope is engaging, based in evidence, and practical, and promotes rich discussion among members. I recently became an editor, and am learning and enjoying this new role, thanks in large part to the wonderful mentorship of the FMPE Editor group.
