Distributed Medical Education
The College of Medicine, University of Saskatchewan is currently investigating how distributed medical education could provide more physicians for Saskatchewan. Saskatchewan has some dynamic examples of community-based medical education such as:
Regina Family Medicine Unit
To further your understanding of what distributed learning looks like in other provinces, please look at the models below.
Multiple Campus Model
In this model, traditional classroom teaching at the undergraduate level is provided on several campuses simultaneously. In many cases, this model is supported by broadband computer technology that allows lectures to be delivered to multiple sites.
Northern Ontario Medical School
Northern Campus, Island Campus + Fraser Valley Campus
Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry
Windsor and London Campuses
In this very common model, students go into rural communities for clinical rotations.
University of Ottawa
