Rural communities interested in attracting Health Professionals
Manitoba Rural Physician Action Plan
Action Plan Canada http://www.manitoba.ca/health/documents/actionplan.pdf
The Manitoba Rural Physician Action Plan aims to increase the number of graduating physicians and other health professionals who choose to practice and live in rural and northern Manitoba. The creation of Manitoba’s Office of Rural and Northern Health (ORNH) was a part of this plan. ORNH focuses on the creation of programming and initiatives that increase the profile of rural health care opportunities among rural and northern Manitoba secondary school students and students training in health care programs in Manitoba.  In addition, the ORNH is responsible for a variety of programs that deal with issues of long-term recruitment and retention of existing rural and northern Manitoba health-care practitioners.
