    • Grey Bruce, ON


    On August 19-21, 2022, we invite you to come and experience all that life has to offer when living in Grey Bruce. 

    The physician recruitment teams of the area have joined forces to help you experience some of our favourite parts of Grey and Bruce Counties from canoeing down the Saugeen river to enjoying the flavours of our local microbreweries.

    This rotating event will explore different parts of our region each year with the goal of fully immersing you in the lifestyle and culture of our rural Ontario communities.

    Above all, this retreat aims to provide physicians interested in rural medicine an opportunity to meet with potential colleagues, make connections, and find out more about the place we call home.



    Physicians, residents, medical students, and partners. As recruiters we acknowledge that we aren’t always just recruiting a physician, but their families as well! Whether you choose to come alone or with your partner we are excited to get to know you as individuals and what is important to you. 

    The retreat attracts adventurous individuals curious about rural medicine and looking to find a work-life balance in an everchanging atmosphere. We invite you to eat, drink, and play, all while getting to know Bruce Grey and what makes our area unique.


    Explore. Experience. Practice

    UBCCPD has partnered with the Rural Coordination Centre of BC (RCCbc), and they are excited to invite you to the Rural POCUS Rounds!

    This series of virtual rounds will be based on rurally focused POCUS topics, learnings and situations. The Rural POCUS Rounds series aims to increase the use of, experience with, and community surrounding point-of-care ultrasound for rural based healthcare providers.

    The rounds will seek to

    • improve rural POCUS skills and confidence 
    • build a POCUS community of practice including mentoring, and ultimately better patient care

    Each session will include presentation-style learning and time for volunteered case studies. Attendees will have an opportunity to share real life scans and work through specific scenarios. 

    Zoom link, and session information will be emailed to those who have registered prior to each session.
