ABOUT THE AWARD
We are pleased to announce the establishment of the OHC Student Award honouring Dr. Joy Calkin.
Dr. Calkin was instrumental in the planning and opening of Our Health Centre in Chester, Nova Scotia.
This $5,000 award will be given to a student entering their second year of studies in a medical, nurse practitioner, or nursing program at a Nova Scotia post-secondary institution.
All students are welcome to apply but preference will be given to those who have a link to the area served by OHC and to the catchment areas of the South Shore Regional and Fishermen’s Memorial Hospitals.
Applications will be accepted from September 1st to September 22nd, 2023.
Community support plays an important role in medical staff recruitment during these very trying and competitive times.
The OHC Student Award is a part of our recruitment program, encouraging graduating medical and nursing staff to locate to our area and the catchment zone of the South Shore Regional and Fishermen’s Memorial Hospitals.
