Rural Interest Group

Rural Interest Group workstations

Morden and Winkler hosted first and second year medical students who are a part of the Rural Interest Group for a weekend workshop aimed at promoting the benefits of practicing medicine in rural communities.

Thirty three U of M medical students participated in the event that took place on April 21 and 22, 2017. Students were able to participate in clinical workstations that were located at Boundary Trails Health Centre where students were able to put their skills to the test practicing everything from sutures, to putting casts on their colleagues, as well as learning pap and IUD techniques. Students also worked with a respiratory therapist and had an opportunity for a tour of the Boundary Trails Health Centre and Katie’s Cottage.
