The Rural Ontario Medical Program (ROMP) is funded by the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care (MOHLTC) and operates as a learner placement program for Ontario's six medical universities.   ROMP arranges core and elective rotations for medical trainees across south central Ontario in one-on-one learning situations with physician preceptors.  It is ROMP's hope that, through creating "home-grown" physicians, we can help the communities ease the burden caused by the nation-wide physician shortage.  As residents graduate and move towards their first practice, ROMP offers guidance and ongoing support to ensure the utmost success in their ventures.

"[My preceptor] was comfortable  to give me an appropriate level of responsibility and organized her office in a way that this was possible.  She also encouraged that independence of practice that is so important (and infrequently received) in the last year of residency.   She is a very strong role model, as a community-based physician and has been a big part in my decision to pursue this."

Mission Statement

As a learner placement program, ROMP coordinates rural rotations for medical students and residents from the six Ontario medical universities. The staff at ROMP work with a voluntary association of physicians who share a commitment to providing quality educational experiences in rural medical practice.
