The Rural Summer Student Program was established through the Aging at Home funding, to provide summer employment for students in rural healthcare settings. Through this program, we hope to raise awareness of rural employment opportunities, with the goal of students returning after graduating and entering the rural healthcare job market.
We have established partnerships with local healthcare organizations, including:
- Grand Bend and Area Community Health Centre
- Exeter Villa Nursing Home
- OneCare Home & Community Support Services
Each of these organizations participates in this program and offer summer student employment in the healthcare sector.
