From family medicine clinics to specialist units around British Columbia, there are more than 1300 UBC resident doctors training in regional, rural and remote communities.
Guided by UBC clinical faculty, resident doctors provide compassionate care to families and patients, and play a crucial role in our healthcare system. They also contribute their skills and knowledge beyond the clinic.
“Resident doctors support the education of medical students, conduct research and strengthen health care as they train to become expert practitioners in numerous specialties,” says Dr. Ravi Sidhu, Associate Dean of Postgraduate Medical Education. “I am grateful for their dedication to serving and enhancing health of communities across B.C.”
Thank you to all UBC resident doctors for the care you provide communities across B.C.
