Amazing Opportunities in Milk River

Physician careers span the globe but none have the image of the Canadian prairie country doctor. Back in the early 1900s when a community could attract a doctor, the event was cause for celebration. Hospitals got built. Babies were born with medical assistance. Broken limbs had a better chance of being mended. Communities grew because the hospital with a doctor on call attracted a pharmacist and other people, too, who had skills in support of practicing medicine. Before long there were well baby clinics and public health nurses helping to deliver programs to promote good health.

Milk River’s Health Centre provides career opportunities in the following medical fields: physicians, EMS, laboratory and x-ray services, respiratory therapy, mental health, dietitians, physical therapy, diabetes education, pharmacy, registered and licensed practical nurses, social workers, home care workers, and public health nurses. Milk River provides a setting for these professionals to experience rural life while taking advantage of the many job opportunities in various medical related fields within the community.

As part of experiencing the opportunities in the Milk River, the Rural Health Professions Action Plan or Rh PAP- sponsored Medical Skills Days and Weekend events have provided Alberta medical students, and other aspiring healthcare professionals, with the opportunity to experience healthcare delivery in rural setting. Participants learn new skills, meet new people, and explore what living and working in a rural community really means.
