National Centre of Rural Medicine (NCRM) is situated in Northern Norway, at the Department of Community Medicine, University of Tromsoe. The first conference concerning rural medicine was in Tromsø March 2002. Since 2007 the centre has received annual, forseeable government support.
NCRM is aiming to promote research, professional development projects, education and networking amongst physicians and health personnel in rural and remote areas. The vision is to bridge praxis and academia, to contribute to quality improvement, and recruitment and retention of health personnel.
The manager of NCRM is prof. Ivar J Aaraas, and in addition there is established a decentralised Rural Medicine Expert Group of four rural GP's from different parts of Norway.
The Research Advisory Group is responsible for research and projects.
The main funding is provided by The Norwegian Directorate of Health and from Northern Norway Regional Health Authority (Helse Nord RHF)
