Learn more about RhPAP’s FIRST Program. 

Each year, RhPAP offers up to four rural Alberta communities as much as $5,000 to host a local training event. The FIRST Program was developed to enable rural health professionals to have access to innovative and collaborative education opportunities that are not already funded elsewhere. Through this program, rural, multi-disciplinary teams can bring team leadership, communication, continuing professional development and medical education, or practice management training sessions to their own communities.

Is there training that would benefit your rural health-care team, but no other program provides funding for it?
