Our new outreach campaign promotes the lifestyle and practice of physiotherapists in BC’s rural and remote communities, with the goal of encouraging retention and recruitment of physiotherapists outside of urban areas of BC, and inspiring students to pursue the profession and bring their skills back to rural communities. We traveled across the province over the summer—to Prince George, Kimberley and Chase—to get a wide snapshot of the landscape of rural and remote physiotherapy province-wide. We spoke with four physiotherapists about their different experiences and communities, and why they all agree that rural and remote practice is the best kind of practice.
