MUN Rural Medicine Interest Group

MUN's RMIG is run by MUN Medical Undergraduate Students, Graduate and Undergraduate students. Anyone is open to join, and to check out our events!

The group itself does a number of different activities each year.

To stimulate rural medicine interest among undergraduate students, we host lectures from guest speakers, discussions on important health topics, insight into clinical skills and more. We also provide rural undergraduate students the tools and support necessary to lead outreach activities in their respective home communities, and create the bridge between rural communities and the urban center where the med school resides.

This framework was developed for a number of reasons. There are logistical and financial barriers for rural students attending university and med school. By utilizing rural undergraduate students, who have already overcome the social and economical barriers to attend university, as mentors to students in their respective home communities, we hope more students will strive to pursue university themselves and subsequently medicine. And, of course, a mentor-ship network that defies geographical and social barriers, and whose function is to motivate and inspire rural students into pursuing medical careers will be created


MUN's Rural Medicine Interest Group (RMIG) was established to help stimulate interest in rural medicine among both secondary and post-secondary students.

The objectives of MUN's RMIG include increasing the number of medical students who are from rural backgrounds; to foster interest among rural students (junior high, high school, undergraduate) to pursue medicine; and to develop leadership skills among rur
