USask to expand College of Medicine Regina campus

July 7, 2021
The University of Saskatchewan has announced that it will be expanding its College of Medicine Regina campus, which will allow medical students to start their studies in Regina. Previously, students needed to begin their studies in Saskatoon before transferring to the Regina campus, but the expansion will allow 40 students to start and complete their full degrees at the Regina campus. A goal of the expansion is to attract more students from southern Saskatchewan and to improve graduate retention rates. “We’ve got a really committed team here ready to support these learners and we can’t wait to welcome the first ever cohort of first-year medical students to the College of Medicine Regina campus at RGH in August 2022,” said Dr Gill White, associate dean of the College of Medicine Regina campus.
