Rural Medicine Interest Group

The University of Alberta’s Rural Medicine Interest Group (RMIG) is a student-run organization that promotes awareness on rural health. We work with our partners to inform students about upcoming events, scholarships and workshops in rural medicine. All students enrolled in the MD program are considered members of the University of Alberta Rural Medicine Interest Group.

Leadership roles in the RMIG are given to second-year students. Each year, new students are given the opportunity to act on behalf of organizations that focus on rural medicine to give their peers the best information possible.

Leadership for 2016-17 academic year:

  • Asha Varughese
