Society of Rural Physicians of Canada



The Fellowship of Rural and Remote Medicine of the SRPC (FRRMS) was presented for the first time in 2009. It is designed to recognize expertise in the practice of rural medicine in Canada.

The Fellowship award is presented to physicians who are previous recipients of the Rural Service Award (must have worked in rural or remote Canada for 10 years and have been a member of the SRPC for the last five consecutive years). The nominee must attend the Rural and Remote Medicine Course to receive and be presented the award.

A total of 10 points is required to receive the award. Points are accumulated as follows:

Each year serving as a preceptor for students and residents generates one point. 
•Each SRPC sanctioned event attended generates one point. 
•Each full year serving on an SRPC committee generates one point. 
•One point will be given for each skill: GP Surgery, GP Anesthesia, GP Obstetrics. 
•One point will be given to those having published in the CJRM.
