Welcome to ERMEP

ERMEP promotes and develops Distributed Medical Education (DME) in Eastern Ontario by facilitating the placement of medical learners at appropriate sites.

We believe that the time the medical learners spend in rural and regional practice will be the highlight of their training.  It will be an intense, exhilarating and demanding period of rapid professional and personal growth which should appeal to each and every learner.

We believe that education in rural and regional areas is also integral to rural recruitment.  Training in these communities allows learners to make an informed decision about opportunities beyond the academic centres.


All rotations must be a minimum of 4 weeks to be accepted, set up, & funded by ERMEP.  Funding includes learner’s accommodations & travel as well as a preceptor stipend.


Postgrads - ERMEP is only able to set up and fund your electives.


Applications must be completed prior to a rotation in order to be funded.    Ideally, applications should be completed 4 to 6 months prior to the rotation start date.
