Selkirk pre-med gets big financial backing

It has already attracted lots of positive talk but now a new program at Selkirk College is receiving big financial backing.

The three -year pre-medicine program is aimed at rural students and giving them the skills to get into medicine at UBC and then one day perhaps practice rurally.

Program Co-ordinator Elizabeth Lund says the Province and Doctors of BC are now giving the program a million dollars.

That’ll help pay for all the special add-ons Selkirk will offer such as mediation training, volunteer tasks and local research.

Lund says the money is a major endorsement from the medical community.
