RhPAP connects with post-secondary institutions in Alberta to provide future health providers with the opportunity to visit rural Alberta communities and experience what being a rural health-care provider is all about. Previously known as “Skills Weekends”, RhPAP’s “Let’s Go Rural! – Post-Secondary Experiences” have a familiar look with a brand new twist.
These weekend experiences are supported by RhPAP’s Rural Community Consultants, hosted by rural communities, and scheduled throughout the year. Participation occurs through a range of post-secondary health career programs at Alberta’s universities, colleges and technical institutions. Priority is given to students who have not participated in a previous weekend event.
