ERMEP promotes and develops Distributed Medical Education (DME) by facilitating, funding, and supporting the placement of Medical Learners in community-based medical practices and hospitals in rural Eastern Ontario.
As we know, COVID-19 has really thrown a curveball in your education. We also know that some learners are wary of sharing accommodations during this pandemic. ERMEP and your home school have discussed this situation at length. We have chosen not to shut down our shared accommodations because it is very hard to find suitable housing in most of our served communities.
We feel that all learners are self-isolating according to their school’s instructions and thus should be a very low risk of contracting COVID-19. If you are not comfortable with sharing accommodations, please contact us right away and we can discuss any options. (Or…if there are any other options for that community).
