Haida Gwaii CPD

Rural Professional Development

Our Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Program strives to cover the wide spectrum of knowledge relevant to Rural Practice, while also focusing on areas that address the specific needs of our community and our health care providers. 

Our CPD Program is funded by the Community Rural Continuing Medical Education (RCME) Program – an initiative of the Joint Standing Committee on Rural Issues (JSC).
