The WRHA Medicine Program is responsible for acute inpatient and ambulatory care services provided by internal medicine and the subspecialties of medicine. Cardiology is the one sub-program linked to WRHA Medicine Program.
The range of health services provided by the Medicine Program is available to patients from Manitoba, Northwestern Ontario, the Northwest Territories and Nunavut. Patients are received from emergency, rural facilities, family practitioner offices, ambulatory care, community clinics, and other inpatient programs. Patients served by the Medicine Program have multiple diagnoses, which often require the coordination and collaboration of several medical subspecialties and the involvement of a variety of multidisciplinary caregivers to address complex physical and psychosocial needs.
In addition to the secondary and tertiary care provided to patients, the Medicine Program is committed to supporting undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate education. The Medicine Program values, supports and promotes research by the various disciplines involved in the provision of health services to medicine patients.
