Rural Health Professions Action Plan
For nearly three decades, the Rural Health Professions Action Plan (RhPAP) has supported the efforts of rural Albertans to maintain an accessible health workforce close to home. Established in 1991 by the Government of Alberta as the Alberta Rural Physician Action Plan, and originally focused on supporting practising rural physicians, RhPAP has grown to be a broader rural community health workforce attraction and retention resource, an ally with Alberta’s medical schools, as well as a trusted, collaborative partner for rural Alberta communities trying to achieve greater access to health care.
Rural Albertan communities have the appropriate health workforce to effectively deliver the health services they need to thrive.
Support rural Alberta communities in their efforts to keep health care close to home.
RhPAP is committed to fostering and building relationships with rural communities, stakeholders, partners, learners, and each other to encourage better access to rural health care.
