USask celebrates expansion of MD program in Regina, opening of new learning spaces


The University of Saskatchewan’s College of Medicine in Regina recently celebrated the expansion of its medical doctor program and the official opening of new learning spaces. The expanded program will enable students to complete all four years of the program in Regina at the Regina General Hospital. As a result of the expansion, students will no longer need to move between Saskatoon and Regina during their studies. The hospital has also been equipped with a new classroom, study spaces, and an anatomy lab. “What’s unique here in that this is the only [Canadian medical education campus] based entirely in a hospital,” said USask Dean of the College of Medicine Preston Smith.
