What I most enjoyed about my residency at the Student Wellness and Counselling Centre (SWCC) was being exposed to such a wide variety of activities, topics and clients, which not only helped me develop my clinical skills but also allowed me to discover new areas of interest and develop my professional identity and competency as a clinician. What I particularly liked from this residency is the flexibility to explore my various interests, and being supported and encouraged to do so by my supervisors. Without doubt one of the highlights of my training was having the opportunity to complete a minor rotation with the Faculty of Medicine’s Centre for Collaborative Health Professional Education. To my surprise, I discovered a keen interest in working with, leading and facilitating multidisciplinary workshops with healthcare students and professionals. I also greatly benefitted from working closely with the physicians and the registered nurse who recently integrated Student Wellness and Counselling Centre which encourages collaborative interprofessional relationships while offering students a more integrated, holistic approach to healthcare. Last but not least, I enjoyed my interactions with the other residents as well as with my supervisors who were always there to support and offer guidance when needed.
