Each of the rural streams and their wide catchments offer slightly different opportunities based on their location and culture. For example, sites may offer hands-on exposure to the agricultural industry to provide an enhanced understanding of farm-related injuries, time in a rural Canadian Forces base to better understand specialized populations, or work with Aboriginal communities to gain a better understanding of issues surrounding access to health care. Continuity of care at all of our learning sites is an educational priority.
The Rural Stream offers diversity in training sites with experiences in smaller populations of 1,000 to larger communities of between 8,000 and 40,000. We use technology to stay connected with activities taking place in Winnipeg. All of our sites have access to Manitoba Telehealth, most of the other specialty departments webcast their Grand Rounds, and virtual meeting software is often available as an alternative to travelling in for meetings.
