Rural Conference Sponsorship Opportunities

This article is posted on behalf of REAP.

Hello Residents,

The Rural Education Action Plan (REAP) provides sponsorship to UBC Family Medicine, Specialty and Subspecialty Residents to attend provincial and national rurally-focused medical conferences each year.  Residents who have an interest in exploring rural medicine may apply for up to $1,200 for travel and accommodation expenses plus conference registration.

SRPC’s Rural & Remote Medicine Conference – April 21-23, 2022 – Ottawa, ON
RCCbc’s Rural Health Conference – May 13-15, 2022 – Penticton, BC

In light of physical distancing requirements implemented due to COVID-19, this year’s offerings may have to be adjusted, delayed or cancelled but our hope is to provide access to safe, rurally-relevant content to you as best as we can under the present climate.  In the meantime, if you are interested in conference sponsorship please apply by completing the survey at www.reapbc.ca/conference.  Those selected for sponsorship will be contacted by the REAP office by February 28, 2022. Those not selected for sponsorship will be placed on a waitlist and contacted if a space becomes available.

To learn more and apply, please visit www.reapbc.ca/conference by January 31, 2022.
