October 29, 2018 “I think it is extremely important to expose youth in the community to the many career opportunities that exist in health care,” said Dylan Russelo, Medicine Class of 2020. “Not only the pathway to a career as a physician, but also to the many diverse allied health fields that some students may never know existed."

May 30, 2018 One hundred and seventy medical students from Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry experienced what rural medicine is like throughout Southwestern Ontario from May 22 - 31, 2018. Akash Verma, a first-year medical student from the Windsor Campus states, “We remember learning about these in class, but it’s just so nice to see them in person – it’s a completely different experience.”
April 09, 2018 The Office of Distributed Education will be at the Society of Rural Physicians of Canada's 26th Annual Rural and Remote Medicine Course in beautiful St. John's, Newfoundland, from April 12-14. If you're attending, drop by and say hello to us at Booth 21.
March 02, 2018 Melissa Cookson, Medicine Class of 2019, is an avid participant in learning experiences offered through the Distributed Education program. "Learning in various regional settings is a unique experience that medical students have to be a part of to understand.
