Overall, this RhPAP initiative [accommodations] was fundamental in enabling me to do this clerkship year which gave me a brilliant education that I was able to completely tailor to my own needs. It allowed me to gain a genuine, unfettered perspective of what the role of a family physician in a rural community is all about." - Nick Brown
