"As a foreign medical student, it is essential to have research on my resume so that I can secure a resident position in Canada after I graduate. Working at Gateway has allowed me to stay at home in the summers rather than doing research in an urban centre. Ultimately, Gateway has allowed me to pursue my interest in rural research in an environment that I am comfortable in, and a place that I one day hope to practice medicine. I would recommend Gateway to anyone who is interested in rural research as it is truly one of a kind"
- Alex Conlon, Research Student 2018
"Gateway has provided me with the opportunity to have a great summer job in health care through Town and Country Support Services as a Home Support Exercise Instructor. This job gave me skills and experience working with older adults that I would not have otherwise had. Not only did it give me a unique experience to reference on my medical school application, but it also inspired my commitment to caring for older adults and their families." - Dr. Alexandrea Peel, Gateway's Chair of Rural Senior Care
"During my time at Gateway in the summer of 2018, I experienced the inner workings of a successful not-for-profit organization and increased my awareness of the rural health discrepancies that communities like ours face. It allowed me to foster connections with knowledgeable members of the fields I'm passionate about, gain mentors, and most importantly, showed me what can be done when like-minded people come together and believe in their community" - Jessie Payne, Research Student 2018
