Early Indicators of Success
The RPM program was launched in 2014 with support from the Joint Standing Committee on Rural Issues—a committee comprised of Doctors of BC and the Ministry of Health.
The program is designed to help address the underrepresentation of rural students in professional healthcare programs. In the past four years, eight graduates and three of our former students have already received offers of admission to medical schools in Canada. Recent graduates have also successfully entered other competitive programs in the health sciences and found exciting employment in the healthcare sector.
