Medical Learners

Ontario Learners
Through the Rural Ontario Medical Program we provide core and elective rotations with one-on-one learning situations with physician preceptors for medical students, clinical clerks and residents from Ontario’s medical universities. If you are interested in an elective at Headwaters Health Care Centre, please contact the Rural Ontario Medical Program (ROMP) at

Canadian Learners Outside Ontario
Learners from a Canadian University that is outside of Ontario can still apply through ROMP. We ask that the learner have some tie to the Greater Dufferin Area. ROMP will not fund the rotation however they will secure a preceptor for rotations that are 4 weeks or longer. ROMP will put you in touch with Medical Administration Department at Headwaters Health Care Centre to secure a preceptor for rotations less than 4 weeks.

International Learners
If you are an international learner and wish to set up an elective you must register with ROMP.  If you meet the criteria, ROMP will direct you to register also with an Ontario university.  To secure a preceptor, please contact Liane Manifold, Medical Administration at or by calling 519-941-2410 extension 2217.
