Application Process

Application for Enhanced Skills Training Positions

The Enhanced Skills Training Program accepts applications from physicians holding certification from the College of Family Physicians of Canada (CCFP). Candidates who have not yet completed their requirements for certification, are expected to have obtained CCFP prior to commencing their enhanced skills training program. Applicants may be:
  • second-year Family Medicine residents of Alberta and other Canadian universities,
  • practicing physicians from throughout Canada, or
  • international medical graduates who are eligible for registration with the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Alberta.

Some positions are tied to a Return in Service Agreement (RiSA). It is possible for those coming from areas outside of Alberta may arrange a RiSA within their province. Practicing physicians already working in rural Alberta should apply for funding from the Enrichment Program of the Alberta Rural Physician Action Plan. The exact details of the return-in-service commitment are negotiated between the applicant and RPAP.
