NOT A MEDICAL STUDENT? Return to the home page
Welcome to your rotation at 1661 Montreal Road with outpatient mental health services at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO)!
When to Come
- If you have Epic training, come whenever your training is over.
- If you do not have Epic training, come for 9 AM on your first day.
- On subsequent days, please come at 8:30 AM in order to look over charts for the patients for that day; patients are generally booked starting at 9:30 AM.
- Bring your laptop as there may be free blocks of time during which time you can catch up on your readings.
- Bring your lunch as there is no cafeteria in our off-site clinic. There is a staff lounge with a fridge and microwave ovens.
- Please dress conservatively and professionally, given our patient population — which includes teens who struggle with body acceptance, and other teens who have poor boundaries.
- Please wear "closed shoes" with socks (i.e. no open shoes such as sandals) as we are a healthcare facility.

- Learn about the therapeutic alliance
- Learn about attachment
- 3-hr presentation presented to foster parents
