Why Rural

The University of Calgary Rural Family Medicine program is defined by training physicians for a broad scope practice. Focusing on developing the independence necessary for rural medicine and providing the flexibility to hone your skills in any aspect for your career as a rural family doctor. This occurs in a context and practice environment that, as much as possible, reflects the real world of Rural Practice. Following our philosophy that future Rural Physicians should train in the setting in which they practice, Residents choose rotations in regional and rural sites across southern and central Alberta.
