The new BeADoctor.ca provides students, parents, and Alberta’s high school guidance and career counsellors with the information young Albertans need to know about becoming a doctor.

Created by the Alberta Rural Physician Action Plan (RPAP), the refreshed BeADoctor.ca provides up-to-date information and resources for Alberta students, including new multimedia platforms embedded within a responsive website, enabling web-savvy students to ask questions and make informed choices about careers in medicine.
