Rural Program Highlights

The best setting for training rural family physicians is rural family practice, so the 14 residents accepted into the program each year are exposed to a wide variety of rural medicine. Through the CaRMS match residents choose a home base for the two years in either Medicine Hat or Lethbridge. Rotations in our designated sites include more isolated settings and larger towns. Rotations in Yellowknife and Whitehorse are also available. Greater access to clinical experience. As the University of Calgary (UofC) Family Medicine Rural program is one of the most elective rich programs in the nation, the resident is able to tailor the program to meet his or her needs.All rotations are preceptor-based, with the Rural resident usually the only learner. This allows an individualized teaching program andThe clinical rotations in Family Medicine and in the specialty rotations provide experiences in active, community-based teaching practices. In-hospital patient management is incorporated into all of the rotations.
