Alberta’s next generation of physicians now have an important resource to guide them along the path to becoming a doctor.
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.
For more information on BeADoctor.ca and the RPAP School Outreach program, contact a RPAP Community Recruitment Consultant at firstname.lastname@example.org
