The Healthcare Travelling Roadshow was conceived as a grass roots initiative to address rural healthcare workforce shortages. It involves a multidisciplinary group of health-care students from post-secondary institutions around B.C. travelling to rural communities to showcase career opportunities to high school students.
Since 2010, the Healthcare Travelling Roadshow has visited various Northern and rural communities.
- Apr 29 - May 5: Cassiar-Ft. Nelson Roadshow (Smithers, Dease Lake, Watson Lake, Ft. Nelson)
- May 6 - 12: Columbia-Shuswap Roadshow (Sicamous, Revelstoke, Nakusp)
- May 13 - 19: Coastal Roadshow (New Aiyansh, Gingolx, Lak Kw'alaams, Metlakatla)
Applications for the 2019 roadshows will be announced in January 2019.
