We are here to create learning opportunities for the physicians of tomorrow by creating teaching opportunities for medical professionals in rural communities. If you become a ROMP preceptor, you will:
- ● Expose students to rural medicine
- ● Influence medical students’ future career paths
- ● Act as a force of positive change in your office or hospital
- ● Help medical students develop critical skills
Our teaching opportunities also require you to act as a role model for medical students and give direct and immediate feedback to learners throughout the duration of their rotation. Read More

About Rural Ontario Medical Program
While qualified physicians are needed all across the world, the nation-wide physician distribution issue is especially marked in rural areas of Ontario.
Through the Rural Ontario Medical Program (ROMP), we are striving to alleviate this issue by arranging core and elective rotations for medical students and residents, as well as for other health care professionals.
Part of the program also involves preceptors, who are there to be role models for learners and help them develop skills that will be critical to their future success.
If you are interested in applying to ROMP as either a learner or a preceptor, please contact us.
