Kenora is attractive to Elective Learners for several reasons:

  • Having a large Family Health Team so they can experience what it is like to work with a FHT
  • Having exposure to a wide variety of patient problems, particularly related to those associated with lower socioeconomic status and First Nations health and sociopolitical issues, and problems related to the high degree of substance abuse in our region
  • Being exposed to a wide variety of practice environments and styles but still able to retain the benefits of rural hands-on clinical experience.
  • Proximity to Winnipeg
  • The lakes, and opportunity for extensive outdoors activities during their stay
