The Parkland Family Medicine Residency Unit exposes residents to a broad scope of practice in many settings, including hospital wards, emergency rooms, scheduled clinics, community clinics, operating rooms, personal care homes, home visits, and specialty clinics.

To ensure a rich, interdisciplinary learning experience, health professionals such as dietitians, optometrists, audiologists, social workers, nurses, and mental health care professionals are integrated into the program.

The curriculum is designed so that residents spend as much time as possible in the rural setting. Training in Parkland will take place in Dauphin,  an agriculture-based community situated between Duck Mountain Provincial Park and Riding Mountain National Park. For small-town residency, residents will work and be accommodated in the rural community of Ste. Rose du Lac. Some residency training with the Parkland region will also occur in Brandon.
