“The SMA has been closely monitoring the current COVID 19 pandemic and is taking action to protect our members and the general public. We have been in regular contact with the CMA and our fellow provincial and territorial associations to work collaboratively to implement successful prevention and control measures. Social distancing practices are a prudent manner in which to contain the spread of the virus and protect the health of our members. This concern for the health and safety of individuals is paramount. As such, there may be changes and/or cancellations to meetings, courses and events. We will monitor the situation closely and advise our members of these decisions as soon as possible. Those affected by this will be contacted directly.”
Effective immediately, the SMA has made the decision to:
We know that medical school can be busy and stressful. That’s why we’re here. Over the next few years we’ll help you stay happy, healthy and stimulated on the road to becoming a licensed physician. We’ll organize fun contests with great prizes, plan events, offer financial and personal support, and make sure that you take the time to get out and enjoy this beautiful province.

There are countless opportunities for new physicians across Saskatchewan, from big cities to small towns, southern grasslands to northern lake country – and the SMA’s Committee on Rural and Regional Practice knows trying to decide between these options can be overwhelming. So we’d like to make figuring it out a little easier and a lot more fun.
Every year, we’ll take you on tours by bus or plane, so you can explore all that Saskatchewan has to offer. We’ll show you a variety of practice choices and give you a snapshot of what you can expect out of life in each community – that way, when the time comes, you can make an informed decision and start your career with no regrets.
With all the twists and turns of medical training, all medical learners could use a Roadmap to help them get to their destination – and enjoy the trip!
