Rural Family Medicine Residency Program
This is an exceptional educational experience that will meet all your clinical and academic residency requirements within the context of a rural recreational paradise.
Our communities wholeheartedly support the concept of distributive medical education as a means by which residents can obtain valuable medical experience and as a way of introducing future family physicians to the value and pleasure of rural practice and lifestyle.
Undertaking your residency here in the Kootenay Boundary will be a unique and rewarding training opportunity that will equip you with the confidence and skills necessary for success in your future careers as family physicians anywhere you choose to practice.
