Program Highlights

  1. Full-service Family Medicine (office, hospital, Emergency, Obstetrics, Home Care and Long-term care) with a longitudinal program. At the end of the program the Resident is truly trained to practice in any setting and our graduates have gone on to practice in many different settings (including in a modified motor home in the middle of nowhere)
  2. Close one-on-one learning with engaged preceptors. You literally become an integral part of the clinic you are learning in
  3. A collegial and diverse community of physicians, including many specialists and FPs with special interests (Addictions, Geriatrics, Palliative Care, Aviation Medicine, Surgical Care, Men’s Health, Women’s Health, First Nations Medicine) working out of a state of the art new hospital
  4. A very safe, friendly, and welcoming community with great schools, housing, and recreational facilities. We are small enough for a small town feel and yet have many amenities of a large city. Cost of housing is very reasonable. Close to big city shopping, entertainment, and travel without big city crime or traffic
  5. Close to Regina and its airport for both big centre learning and personal opportunities. Several rotations are done in Regina as well as opportunity for electives
  6. Calls is in Emergency, therefore much Emergency training and building confidence
  7. Good work/life balance with less service component to work than in many larger programs
  8. Our residents are usually the only residents on a service and get first chance at learning opportunities. They also have ample opportunity to teach junior learners, many of whom come from to Moose Jaw for rotations
  9. Close to the Canadian Forces Base Moose Jaw, with possibilities for aviation medicine studies
  10. A small program where you form close relationships with your colleagues, preceptors, hospital/clinic staff, and community. You are valued and your voice is heard
  11. Great opportunity to get very good at procedural medicine
