Francophone Family Medicine Graduates will be working throughout the Province of New BrunswickTuesday, June 19, 2007
A recognition ceremony for students finishing the New Brunswick Family Medicine Francophone Program was held in Edmundston on Friday, June 15th. The Management of the Centre de formation médicale du Nouveau-Brunswick/ wishes to acknowledge the record number of medical students finishing the Program this year. “We are fortunate to contribute to the training of bilingual medical resources for the population and to achieve our goal of meeting the needs of the community.”
This year, 10 out of 12 students will remain in New Brunswick. Four graduates will be working at the ACADIE-BATHURST Health Authority, four at the Regional Health Authority Four, and two at the Beauséjour Regional Health Authority.
In addition, this year one graduate from Nova Scotia will be returning to her homeland to begin her practice. Dr Schofield explains: “Over the past years (1992-2004), the Programme de médecine de famille francophone du N.-B. has been the main source for recruiting family practitioners for health authorities with a predominant French speaking population (a study has shown that between 55 % and 95 % of graduates establish their practice within the province) in addition to being an important recruitment source for the South-East Regional Health Authority (Moncton City Hospital).”
