RPAP offers two financial support initiatives to medical students: the Rural Medical School Award, and the John N. Hnatuik Rural Medical Student Bursary.
The RPAP Rural Medical School Award provides $5,000 for each year of medical studies to assist with the student’s tuition, accommodation, living and/or travel expenses. Each year, up to six Rural Medical School Awards are available
The RPAP John N. Hnatuik Rural Medical Student Bursary provides full tuition, including differential fees, for each year of medical studies. Each year, up to ten Rural Medical Student Bursaries are available
These two initiatives aim to encourage students who come from a designated rural area to pursue a career in ruralmedicine by reducing their financial burden.
