Want to complete your rotation at a State-of-the-Art Regional Hospital, located 45 minutes north of Toronto and 45 minutes south of Cottage Country?
In May 2012, Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre (RVH) opened its doors to a $450 million expansion, doubling the size of RVH. This new addition included expansions in the Emergency, Imaging and Surgery departments, along with a brand new Regional Cancer Centre and Cardiac Care Unit.
At RVH and in the Barrie area we offer elective rotations for Medical Students, Medical Residents as well as clinical observerships. All medical learner (Resident and Student) rotations are coordinated through the Rural Ontario Medical Program (ROMP).
