The Postgraduate Rural Rotation Support Program strives to increase residents’ confidence and interest in working in rural areas by increasing exposure to rural communities in BC during their postgraduate training. Through this program, REAP funds UBC Residents enrolled in Specialty Residency and Family Practice Residency Programs who wish to spend elective time in Rural Subsidiary Agreement Communities.
For rotations that are one month or longer in duration, eligible residents may apply for reimbursement of actual travel and accommodation expenses up to $1,400/month. Rotations shorter than one month are compensated at $1,000/trip for actual travel and accommodation expenses.
