Rural & Regional PGE Rotations

Meeting the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons training objectives, the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry, Western University offers postgraduate training opportunities through Distributed Education to Schulich residents.    These rotations provide learners with opportunities to experience learning, living and working in Southwestern Ontario. Information on opportunities in the Windsor area can be found within the Windsor PGE Rotations section.

Reimbursement for travel and funding for accommodation is provided for rotations of a minimum of 4 weeks in length. Many communities have accommodation available to our residents in designated apartments or houses. It is our goal to make your experience the best possible!
