The Sundre eSim Lab for Rural Health Practitioners
Sundre is home to a special rural health practitioner education facility called the eSim Lab. This lab operates out of the former Town of Sundre municipal office, and is supported by AHS and the Town of Sundre, along with private donations. The lab allows for health practitioners to gain experience in the very dynamic environment usually associated in rural health settings (as opposed to the very specialized and focused health practices available in large urban centres). Watch this video below for information on Sundre's special health care learning centre.
