    Program Description

    The SRPC mentorship program is a pilot program that started in 2021 and aims to connect medical students to rural physicians and residents from across the country to allow career exploration, guidance and increased understanding of the scope of rural practice.  We have over 65 mentors ready to help support your rural path.


    • Connecting students to rural physicians across Canada
    • Career exploration and guidance
    • Increase understanding of the scope of rural practice
    • Provide learning opportunities outside of the formal academic environment
    • Contribute to the current and growing need of rural physicians in Canada

    Your Role As a Mentor

    As a mentor with SRPC, medical students will connect with you through the SRPC office manager. Once you are connected, there will be flexibility in how you set up your mentor-mentee relationships, which can be tailored on an individual basis. This may include answering a few quick questions, setting up a longitudinal mentorship plan, or organizing shadowing experiences (public health guidelines permitting).

    Expectations in your role as a mentor may include:

    • Sharing experiences of rural practice with mentees for the purpose of career exploration and guidance
    • Being honest and open regarding the rewards/challenges to rural medicine
    • Forming a plan and setting expectations with your mentee regarding frequency of meetings and meeting platform to be used
    • Sharing appropriate resources
    • Recognizing that advice given, while extremely valuable, does not substitute for MD program-specific mentorship and supports

    * By registering as a mentor for this program, you consent to allowing the SRPC to share the information you have provided to mentees that register for the program.  As a mentor, you may contact the SRPC at any time and have your name removed.

    ** Mentors must be SRPC members to participate in this program.


    If you are looking for a Rural Mentor. Visit the SRPC Mentor Program page for all the details.

    Please ensure your SRPC membership is up to date. Send your email request to Louise for a list of mentors and instructions. (

    We are excited to welcome you to Niagara Falls and the 30th Annual Rural & Remote Medicine  Course.  This year, while we will continue to offer excellent peer-to-peer teaching on the subjects rural physicians need (emergency, obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics, emergency preparedness, family medicine practice, and more), we are focussing on teaching and mentoring in rural practice.  We are all asked to prepare the next generation of practitioners, and we at the SRPC want to help you do just that.  Our plenary speakers will share about rural generalist care and providing it (yes, this needs work) on the international, national and SRPC home-grown levels while guiding the physicians who will take this on after we retire.  Our speakers and workshops from across Canada will leave you with more confidence, whether in managing ADHD, inserting chest tubes, providing palliative care, or teaching medical students and residents.  Add to this the usual convivial, interactive and social culture of Rural & Remote, and there will be lots of networking with your colleagues from across the country. As it is the early spring of the Niagara region, you will want to book your time off now and join us at Rural & Remote 2023!
