Bilingual (French/English) Stream
The ability to practice in both official languages is essential in a number of rural Manitoba communities. To meet this need, the University of Manitoba offers the only English/French bilingual Family Medicine program in Western Canada.

Because our francophone population is spread across Manitoba, we can offer residents the opportunity to experience practice in both rural and urban communities.

Six blocks of Family Medicine time are spent at Centre de Santé St-Boniface, a francophone clinic in the neighborhood of St. Boniface. This Centre focuses on primary health care and has the advantage of a multidisciplinary team: family physicians, nurses, nurse-practitioners, dietitians, mental health counselors, a part-time psychiatrist, a clinical pharmacist, an occupational therapist and a certified athletic therapist / kinesiologist.

Residents provide continuous comprehensive care in the outpatient setting at Centre de santé, and provide inpatient care ay Victoria General Hospital as well as intrapartum, postpartum and newborn care at Hôpital St-Boniface Hospital.

Centre Médical Seine in Ste Anne, MB serves as comprehensive rural family medicine training experience, where residents will spend their time between clinic, hospital, emergency department, long term care. Residents will also complete their longitudinal general surgery experience at Hôpital Ste-Anne Hospital within their five blocks of family medicine block time spent in Ste-Anne.

Two blocks of Family Medicine time are spent in Notre Dame de Lourdes where they will again have the opportunity to be fully immersed in a comprehensive rural family medicine practice. The interdisciplinary clinic serves the surrounding community, and the newly built hospital provides emergency care as well as in-patient, obstetrical & newborn care.
