There are many books dealing with psychological distress, anxiety and stress, insomnia, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), ADHD, and self-esteem that help us begin thinking about how to improve our situation. The FMRQ’s Resident Wellness Committee (RWC) has listed a number of them for you. Some are humorous, others practical. We invite you to take a look at this list in the Health and wellness section under Bibliotherapy. Most of these books can be purchased online. Note that comments on English-language books are in English, while on French-language books they are in French.

The FMRQ’s 21st Quebec Career Day

On Friday, October 21, 2016, the Federation held its 21st Quebec Career Day, at Montreal’s Palais des congrès convention centre. Some 850 medical residents attended and met with representatives from 100 medical establishments. Quebec Career Day aims at bringing together the upcoming generation of physicians with medical establishments looking for physicians, to foster exchanges between the two groups early in the year, in a single location. Again, this event turned out to be a success on all counts.

If you catch wind of such practices, please get in touch with Geneviève Coiteux at the FMRQ.
