Distributed Medical Education

Students learning

Schulich Medicine & Dentistry's Distributed Medical Education (DME) is a partnership of more than 50 communities located throughout Southwestern Ontario that offer rural and regional education and training opportunities to undergraduate and postgraduate learners.

Established in 1997 and funded by the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long Term Care, DME’s mandate is to provide medical education outside the traditional Academic Health Sciences Centre in London. A strategic benefit of high quality community rotations is that it offers learners the exposure to various Southwestern Ontario communities, their physicians, healthcare teams and their practice models.

We encourage you to consider the many training and teaching opportunities available through DME to experience learning, living and working in Southwestern Ontario.
