The Office of Distributed Education at Schulich Medicine & Dentistry, offers a dynamic and progressive curriculum in diversified environments throughout Southwestern Ontario. This provides students and learners exposure to patients, health systems and health challenges in a collection of regional, rural and urban sites.

Schulich Medicine & Dentistry is viewed as a leader in distributed education. The School’s program was officially established in 1997 as the Southwestern Ontario Regional Rural Medicine (SWORRM) Program. Since that time, the program has experienced tremendous growth and expansion.  Distributed Education remains a vital enabler of high quality education across the spectrum of programs at the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry. It is a key success factor woven through all aspects of our system from admissions through to postgraduate work.
