Distributed Medical Education: Program Compendium

Published: May 5, 2015

Distributed Medical Education (DME) is a model of medical education that uses a teaching and learning network that is integrated in and accountable to communities. This program compendium looks at each of the unique Distributed Medical Education programs at Ontario’s six Faculties of Medicine, and their regional and community programs and initiatives.

  1. DME is the new norm for medical education in Ontario with more than 300 Ontario communities and thousands of community physicians now involved in educating the next generation of doctors

  2. More medical students have chosen a career in rural, remote and northern medicine thanks to curriculum that exposes learners to community medical practice

  3. An integrated network of medical education sites outside urban areas provides medical students and residents with the knowledge and skills they need to practice in rural communities

  4. 2.1 million Ontarians now have access to primary health care services

  5. A pipeline has been created for communities to recruit physicians who will help them meet their local health care needs today and in the future
