Hi!

Happy New Year!! How are you all?! I hope well and thriving!

We’re going to hit this year flying because I have plans! Big plans! One of my goals in 2017 is to have all preceptors satisfy the requirements for UBC’s Faculty Development Clinical Teaching Certificate. The year is scheduled to cover the core topics; however, if you’d prefer to accelerate, I’d be more than happy to deliver one-on-one sessions. Contact me directly to arrange this.

To register for the faculty breakfasts, please click on the doodle link under each heading. We need the count for our catering. All sessions are scheduled at the Abbotsford Division of Family Practice (big thank you to the staff there for taking such great care of us!).
