Peterborough

Regional Education has 3 apartments located on Goodfellow Road (please refer to MEdTech Central for apartment building number).


All of the Regional Education accommodations are shared with other medical students or residents.  The accommodations are co-ed, however, we do our best to try and book learners of the same gender together but sometimes that is not possible.  If you choose not to share an assigned apartment, please contact our office immediately to see if an alternate solution can be found.

Our Regional Education accommodations are for the learners use only.
  Accommodations are not provided for other family members or friends (spouses, children, caregivers, etc). 

No Pets -  Please note, our property leases state "No Pets Allowed".  Please respect the wishes of the landlord and be respectful of your roommates as many learners suffer from allergies.

No Smoking -  Smoking is NOT permitted in any of the Regional Education accommodations.

Internet -  These accomodations have been set up with a wireless high speed Internet connection.

Parking is available at the Regional Education apartment complex. Contact Jean Bedford for assigned parking number.

Keys -  pick up keys from Jean Bedford and please remember to call ahead. Also, the keys need to be handed back at the end of the rotation.

Travel -  The cost of 1 return trip for each completed two-week time period is available for reimbursement.  All travel reimbursements are contingent upon fulfillment of learner responsibilities.

Linens -  Bed, bath and kitchen linens are provided.  All linens used must be laundered prior to your departure.

Follow the road to your right as you come on to the hospital property and enter the hospital through the South Entrance (2nd level).

You will be required to obtain a PRHC ID tag. PRHC also provides pagers for all clerks and residents, as required. Both the ID tag and pager must be returned to Brenda George at the end of the rotation.

From time to time clinical clerks are accepted to do rotations on other services in Peterborough by special request.  We make an extra effort to accommodate clerks who come from the Peterborough area and who wish to do a rotation close to home.  If you have a request, please direct it to Brenda George (bgeorge@prhc.on.ca) at Peterborough Regional Health Centre.
