If you happen to notice a few extra medical students around the Midland Penetang area next week, be sure to extend them a warm welcome! Ten students from the University of Toronto and the Northern Ontario School of Medicine will be visiting our area from June 4th – 8th as part of ROMP week.
What is ROMP?
The Rural Ontario Medical Program (ROMP) is designed to provide first and second year medical students with an opportunity to see what it is like to practice medicine in a host rural community. Students are given the chance to scrub in, go on rounds, learn about a specialty, enjoy the outdoors and get to know a rural community. For the past 9 years, the Southern Georgian Bay Physician Recruitment Committee has hosted this annual rural medicine week in our community.
Ferguson Barristers Sponsors BBQ
Ferguson Barristers is pleased to be a part of this important initiative as the sponsor for the goodbye BBQ taking place at the end of the students’ stay in our community. We look forward to meeting with our future physicians at the BBQ.
