For each PRA-BC session, BC health authorities identify underserved communities where successful candidates must complete a three year return of service (ROS).

The list of identified ROS communities will differ with each PRA-BC intake.  Health authorities, ROS community clinics, and physicians involved in the interview process strongly urge candidates to learn as much as possible about BC and the communities identified for PRA-BC candidates.

The Rural Coordination Centre of British Columbia (RCCbc) website is an excellent source for detailed information about rural communities throughout the province, including population statistics, demographics, as well as practitioner and clinic information.

The Health Match BC website is also an excellent source for community information, urban or rural.
