The Specialty Training Bursary Program provides funding to eligible medical specialty residents or rural physicians completing focused postgraduate training in a Faculty of Medicine (FoM) Specialty Training Program. A one-year return of service requirement is attached to each year of funding that the successful applicant receives. Preference will be given to specialties identified as being “in need” in rural communities in BC.
Each successful applicant will be eligible for up to two years of bursary funding (at $25,000/annum) to a maximum of $50,000.
- Three bursaries will be offered in each fiscal year.
Residents or rural physicians are eligible to apply if they:
- are enrolled in a Canadian Specialty Residency program and in the final two years of residency;
- have been accepted to a specialty position by a hospital included in the RSA once they complete their residency program.
- Bursary funding is only available while the recipient is pursuing a Specialty Residency Program.
This year’s deadline is June 30, 2021. Applications will be accepted for one month prior to the application deadline. Please do not submit your application prior this this time period. Selection will be announced by September 15th.
Due to physical distancing measures, REAP Staff is working remotely. Please submit your application by email during this time.
