Resident Physicians in the Legislature

Resident Physicians in the Legislature (RIL) is a continuing advocacy event providing Alberta's resident physicians the opportunity to foster relationships with their elected representatives and senior government officials.

RIL is a non-partisan event that focuses on health care issues relevant to all Albertans. It provides an opportunity for resident physicians to have an impact on health policy and gain experience in CanMEDS roles of health advocate and communicator.

This year’s theme is Pharmacare. Resident physicians will be sharing the importance of all Albertans having access to the appropriate medications as part of ensuring the best care is provided.
