Visiting Specialist Program
The Dauphin Hospital Foundation contributes funding support so specialist physicians and other health care professionals continue to consider providing service within the community. This in turn, enhances access to services that residents would otherwise have to travel to Brandon or Winnipeg to receive.
The funding goes towards covering travel and other relatable expenses (eg. accomodations) that the visiting specialists can use so they can provide the service in Dauphin at Dauphin Medical Clinic.
The Foundation has a limit of up to $20,000 to contribute to the Visiting Specialist Program.
Some past examples of specialists that have provided service to the community, via the Program, include urologists, obstetricians and dermatologists to name a few.
