REAP Special Training Bursary
REAP offers a Specialty Training Bursary to medical specialty residents enrolled in a Canadian Specialty Training Program.

This year’s application deadline has been extended to September 30, 2016. Any inquiries about this bursary should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information on REAP, please visit www.rccbc.ca and click on “REAP Funding.”
