REAP Sponsorship Opportunities for Rural Focused Medical  Conferences

The Rural Education Action Plan (REAP) provides sponsorship to UBC medical students and family medicine, specialty and subspecialty residents to attend provincial and national rurally-focused medical conferences each year.  Students and residents who have an interest in exploring rural medicine may apply for up to $1,200 for travel and accommodation expenses plus conference registration. 

SRPC’s Rural & Remote Medicine Conference – April 21-23, 2022 – Ottawa, ON
RCCbc’s Rural Health Conference – May 13-15, 2022 – Penticton, BC

In light of physical distancing requirements implemented due to COVID-19, this year’s offerings may have to be adjusted, delayed or cancelled but our hope is to provide access to safe, rurally-relevant content as best as we can under the present climate.  If you are interested in conference sponsorship please apply by completing the survey at www.reapbc.ca/conference.  Those selected for sponsorship will be contacted by the REAP office by February 28, 2022. Those not selected for sponsorship will be placed on a waitlist and contacted if a space becomes available.
