Family Medicine Sponsorship Program

The Family Medicine Sponsorship Program is a program of the Department of Health and Wellness designed to support proactive physician succession planning. The program provides funding for selected medical students pursuing Family Medicine as a profession. The funds will be paid directly to the students in the form of stipends to assist with their medical education expenses.  A contract will be signed requiring the student to complete a Return-in-Service commitment to Prince Edward Island to work in the area of greatest need upon the completion of their training. Candidate location preferences will be taken into consideration as well.


Please check back at a later date for updated information on the Family Medicine Sponsorship Program.
