Rural Medical Interest Groups

Medical students with a particular interest in family medicine or rural medicine can join like-minded peers in themed students groups called RMIGs (Rural Medicine Interest Groups) and FMIGs (Family Medicine Interest Groups).

Both universities in Alberta and many across Canada have these groups. 

RMIG - University of Alberta  

RMIG & FMIG - University of Calgary  

Through the support of the RPAP|Health Workforce for Alberta organization, there are many learning opportunities and fun events offered to the RMIG students including shadowing opportunities and Skills weekends.  

For more information on these events, please have a look at the RPAP YouTube channel here: RPAP Skills Weekends – Videos.
