The University of British Columbia Faculty of Medicine contributes to the health of individuals and communities locally, nationally and internationally by fostering excellence, innovation and scholarship in education, research, and care.
Over the past two decades, the Faculty has helped transform the landscape of postgraduate medical education (PGME) in B.C. in both size and reach. Using a province-wide delivery model, nearly 1400 postgraduate learners are currently engaged in training across the province, creating clusters of learning and enhancing service capacity in the Lower Mainland, on the Island, the Interior and in the North — including rural and remote communities of B.C.
The UBC Department of Medicine is dedicated to the delivery of state-of-the-art patient care, basic and applied research, and the training of medicine’s future leaders. These goals are undertaken through an academically vibrant milieu against the backdrop of one of the world’s most geographically beautiful locations. Our programs offer superb and well-balanced training with ample flexibility to accommodate individual needs. Moreover, these programs undergo continual reappraisal and enhancement to ensure that they meet your needs as an adult learner. Our trainees will be exposed to a host of ambulatory and in-hospital patients – cared for in a diverse set of locations – from small community to large community, and tertiary care venues.
