OTTAWA – The federal government is enacting strict new measures to address mounting concerns about tired flight crews on commercial planes — big and small.

The province is setting up a new family medicine residency program in the Interlake to enable medical residents to learn more about rural medicine and treat patients in the region.
The program will see residents in the Rady Faculty of Health Sciences at the University of Manitoba Max Rady College of Medicine work in the Interlake-Eastern Regional Health Authority. The goal is to retain a number of the physicians in the region once they graduate and become doctors.
