Dr. Jill Konkin was recognized for being champion of rural health education for medical students at an event celebrating the 10th anniversary of the University of Alberta's Rural Integrated Community Clerkship (RICC) program.
Established in 2007, the Rural Integrated Community Clerkship (RICC) places third-year medical students in rural Alberta communities for approximately 36 weeks, where students are provided with continuous patient care, preceptor supervision, and learning experiences at regional family medicine practices.
The RICC event also connected old friends when RPAP’s Executive Director, Bernard C. Anderson, met up with the Ministry of Advanced Education representative, Laura Schneider, and the Ministry of Health’s representative, Dr. Bright Drah. #albertahealth #alberta #rural #ruralhealth #ruralmedicine #medicalstudent @bernardrpap @university_of_alberta @youralberta
