    The majority of our delegates are experienced doctors who are practicing in rural and remote Canada and students and residents interested in rural medicine. Other delegates include nurses, physician assistants, medical educators, health administrators, and academics.

    SRPC’s Rural and Remote Medicine Conference has become one of the largest rural medical conferences, attracting nearly 1,000 attendees in previous years. It presents rural doctors with opportunities to gain and/or upgrade vital skills, exchange knowledge, develop their professional and social networks, and compare notes on the evolving field of rural medical practice.
