The Rural Coordination Centre of BC is launching another round of applications for the Rural Global Health Partnership Initiative Grant.

The Rural Global Health Partnership Initiative (RGHPI) is a new program providing funding to support partnerships between rural BC physicians or medical trainees committed to rural service, and lower resource communities in BC, Canada, and in developing countries. The goals of this initiative are to enhance capacity for generalism in rural BC; to foster reciprocal learning in diverse health systems and community contexts; and to demonstrate how global health (local and international) community partnerships can heighten awareness, create innovative solutions to address healthcare challenges, and lead to improved health outcomes, especially for underserved, marginalized, and indigenous populations.

The next deadline is October 31, 2018.

Application details can be found here.

Eligible applicants

  • BC physicians with experience practicing rural medicine, extensive connections to rural communities, and a demonstrated interest in global health.
  • BC medical trainees (resident or medical student) with a demonstrated interest in rural medicine and global health.
