2018 Healthcare Travelling Roadshow - Apply Now!

January 22, 2018

The Healthcare Travelling Roadshow is seeking BC healthcare students and recent graduates to help recruit the next generation of rural healthcare professionals. 

Travel with a multidisciplinary group of healthcare students and graduates from post-secondary institutions across B.C. to showcase career opportunities to rural high school students. Explore rural BC and engage with local community stakeholders and healthcare professionals. 

Join us for one of three exciting roadshow trips in Northern and Interior BC: 

  • Cassiar-Fort Nelson Roadshow (Smithers, Dease Lake, Watson Lake, Fort Nelson) - April 29 to May 5, 2018
  • Columbia-Shuswap Roadshow (Sicamous, Revelstoke, Nakusp) - May 6 to 12, 2018
  • Coastal Roadshow (New Aiyansh, Gingolx, Lak Kw'alaams, Metlakatla) - May 13 to 19, 2018

The Healthcare Travelling Roadshow was conceived as a grass roots initiative to address rural healthcare workforce shortages. The provincial initiative has grown to include three regional trips each year in Northern and Interior BC. Since its inception in 2010, the roadshow has connected with more than 7,000 teenagers in 32 communities throughout BC. 

If you are a healthcare student or recent graduate and interested in participating in one of the 2018 roadshows, please submit your online application by February 28, 2018. 

All travel, accommodation, and meal expenses are covered for participating students. Interprofessional Education Passport credits also available.

The Healthcare Travelling Roadshow is delivered in partnership with the University of Northern BC, UBC Faculty of Medicine, Northern Medical Programs Trust, Rural Education Action Plan, and Interior Health.
