Valueup to $60,000 for undergraduate tuition fee reimbursement
The Rural Education Supplement and Integrated Doctor Experience (RESIDE) program will provide $2 million to 20 new family physicians in each of the next three years. The physicians will practise in 15 identified rural or remote communities of need. Further communities will be identified in subsequent years.
Family physicians who choose to work in specific communities will be eligible for $60,000 for undergraduate tuition fee reimbursement, as well as a remote community incentive ranging from $20,000 to $40,000, depending on the community’s remoteness. In exchange, successful physicians will provide three years of service in a designated rural community.
To be eligible, applicants must meet the following criteria:
- be a Family Medicine resident physician in their final year of residency completing their training before the end of the calendar year, or a Family Medicine physician in their R3 year of enhanced skills training completing their R3 training before the end of the calendar year
- demonstrate interest in rural health
- be prepared to sign a return-of-service agreement
