Dr. Ron Gorsche, RhPAP Physician Skills Broker
The RhPAP Skills Broker is a resource to physicians regarding the Peter K. Lindsay Enrichment Program. If physicians are interested in upgrading or developing particular skills, the Broker can suggest training opportunities that may be available to fulfill their needs or tell them if the training they have in mind is eligible for Enrichment Program funding.
Once an application is submitted, the Skills Broker will review the submission with RhPAP and applicable individuals to determine whether eligibility criteria have been met and, if so, the application will be approved subject to available funding. Once approved, the Broker is responsible for negotiating the training with either of the schools of medicine in Alberta or another training organization that can fulfill the learning needs of the candidate. Dr. Gorsche will keep the applicant up to date on the status of the training request. When the training has been organized, he will arrange a letter of understanding between RhPAP and the trainee.
Please note: RhPAP can also provide physician preceptor compensation as part of this training.
