A Rural Generalist is a medical practitioner who is trained to meet the specific health care needs of rural communities, in a sustainable and cost-effective way. The Rural Generalist Framework approaches training in comprehensive general practice, emergency care, and advanced procedural and cognitive skills. Join us to learn more about this framework and how it can inform your learning and teaching.
Participants will be able to:
- Articulate the concept and expanded scope of practice encompassed by rural generalists
- Thoughtfully choose appropriate learning experiences in preparation for rural practice
- Modify their own education plans to incorporate rural generalism
- Adapt their plans to the community in which they wish to practice
