Commitment to Rural Medical Education
The Southwestern Ontario Medical Education Network (SWOMEN) is a partnership of over 40 communities throughout Southwestern Ontario which provides rural/regional medical education and training experience to undergraduate and postgraduate learners (Residents) from the Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry.
The clinical clerkship, or third year of the medical program, is constituted so that all clerks will be expected to spend time outside of London or Windsor in the SWOMEN teaching sites. It is important that applicants to the Schulich Medicine MD undergraduate program understand that they will be mandated to spend part of third year away from London or Windsor. There are no exceptions to this policy. By accepting an offer of admission to this program you are consenting to participate fully in this approach to learning.
