Continuing Medical Education (CME) for rural Alberta physicians builds healthy communities.
However, providing Alberta’s rural physicians with access to CME can be a challenge. The decision to attend a CME activity can have an impact on a smaller rural practice, placing strain on the physician’s remaining colleagues, and imposing significant financial costs on the physician attending.
To help offset or negate these burdens, the Rural Health Professions Action Plan provides Alberta's rural physicians with access to Continuing Medical Education initiatives.
The RhPAP partnered with Memorial University, University of Calgary, University of Alberta and others to offer a national web portal, MDcme.ca, formerly RuralMDcme.ca. The aim of MDcme.ca is to provide greater access to distributed programming for the professional development needs of Canada's physicians.More
