The Chatham-Kent Family Health Team is thrilled to be involved with the MedLINCS Program (MedLINCS – Medical Learning in Community Settings) out of Western University’s Schulich School of Dentistry and Medicine.
MedLINCS aims to build opportunities for medical students to experience living, learning and working in rural and regional Southwestern Ontario, and to inspire local youth to consider medicine or a career in health care, ultimately creating a continuum of learners throughout the region.
For several years, we have provided the opportunity for first and second year Medical Students to experience working in Family Health Team in addition to working at the Chatham-Kent Health Alliance. These future physicians are exposed to many of the Health Care Professionals that they will work with in their career.

In addition to hosting the Medical Students, CKFHT is also excited to support the High School MedLINCs Program which strives to effectively bringing a dynamic health career exploration program to secondary school students in their home communities. Delivered by first and second year Schulich Medicine students, MedLINCS has become the summer program of choice for grade 10 and 11 students interested in medicine, nursing and the multitude of exciting allied health professions.
