About the Moose Jaw Site

The Moose Jaw site has been receiving full-time, geographically-based learners at this level since July 2014. It operates out the Dr. F.H. Wigmore Regional Hospital. The recently completed Regional Hospital provides 24-hour emergency facilities and a broad array of specialist services including; Obstetrics & Gynecology, Pediatrics, General Surgery, Orthopedics, Urology, ICU, Internal Medicine, Ophthalmology, Mental Health & Addictions Services, Radiology, Pathology, and ENT.  As such, there are many clinical and educational opportunities available for medical learners in Moose Jaw.  With the smaller community size (54,000 total catchment areas) and smaller number of learners, there are many more hands-on experiences than one might find in a larger, urban centre.  In addition, there is increased opportunity for procedures and one-on-one interaction with preceptors.

Family Medicine training occurs in preceptor offices throughout the city of Moose Jaw. With the longitudinal focus of the Triple-C Curriculum, residents are continuously training in Family Medicine throughout their 2-year residencies, following patients throughout the course of their care.  By training physicians with this method, a true sense of family practice is achieved, preparing residents who are well-equipped for future practice, whether rural or urban.  Moose Jaw, while considered rural, has all of the amenities of a typical small city with the added convenience of being a half hour drive away from Regina, our province’s capital city and the second largest urban centre in Saskatchewan.

Included in the facilities of the new hospital building, there is a state-of-the-art Family Medicine Resident classroom equipped with modular furniture, videoconferencing equipment, teleconferencing equipment and internet access.  Click here for more information.
