In order to address the unique clinical characteristics of each community, the Community-Based CPD Program is offered in three locations*: Steinbach, Morden/Winkler and Thompson (also covering northern sites via MBTelehealth). A community physician for each location is appointed as program chair . These physicians identify the learning needs of their colleagues and work with the U of M CPD Medicine Department to organize these events.
The Community-Based Program is supported by an unrestricted education grant from the Office of Rural and Northern Health.
