Faculty Development & Preceptor Appreciation Day

This event is family friendly and open to any preceptors who want to come. Last year we had attendees from such far flung reaches as Bella Coola, Saltspring Island, and Inuvik and are hoping for a similarly heterogeneous group this year.

If you have any questions please contact Christel Deas, who’s the point person for this event.
