Rural health research contributes to a collective understanding of rural healthcare challenges and solutions. It’s important for rural research to be conducted by rural researchers because they understand the rural context and ask the right questions. RCCbc partners with universities and health authorities to support research by rural doctors, residents and medical trainees. We offer grants, along with assistance in developing research proposals, methodologies and dissemination plans.
