Physicians in rural Alberta have an opportunity to learn the skills they need to better serve their communities.
The Peter K. Lindsay Enrichment Training Program is for rural doctors who want to upgrade existing skills or gain new skills in order to meet the medical needs of the community or surrounding areas. Physicians accepted into the program receive an honorarium, prorated for the length of training. Preceptors are eligible for a monthly honorarium, prorated for the length of the training.
We talked to some rural Alberta physicians who participated in the enrichment program. Here is what they had to say:
Because the length of training depends on the physician’s background and learning objectives there is no set time. However, in order to qualify for the program, the training period can be no less than two weeks and not greater than twelve months.
