Rural Placements

Rural Sites

The Faculty of Medicine has established links with a few communities surrounding Ottawa who take a large proportion of our learners. These sites have administrative support from the Faculty and tend to take many of our mandatory specialty rotations.

  • Cornwall
  • Hawkesbury
  • Pembroke
  • Winchester
  • Shawville, Quebec

The Ministry of Health has also set up a network of regional medical education programs who work with the University and the community to increase medical education opportunities. These agencies match students to community preceptors and help to fund their travel, accommodations and other expenses for these placements.  NOTE: To use one of these networks, the rotation must be at least 4 weeks in duration.
