Welcome to the UBC Core Internal Medicine Residency Program
The UBC Department of Medicine Residency Training Program operates at various sites throughout the city including Vancouver General Hospital, St. Paul’s Hospital, UBC Hospital and also at multiple allied institutions and non-tertiary care settings around the province.
The primary mission of the UBC Internal Medicine Residency Program is to train residents to attain the knowledge, skills and attitudes to become excellent general internists who are committed to upholding the highest ethical and professional standards of medicine. Residents learn to provide compassionate, respectful, patient-centered and evidence-based care in a variety of academic and community settings. The primary instructional strategy is experiential learning, which occurs through the residents’ graduated patient care responsibilities in combination with a variety of CanMEDS non medical expert learning projects..
Graduates are prepared to enter the practice of general internal medicine or to pursue fellowship training, either in general internal medicine or the subspecialties of internal medicine.
If you are interested in applying to the UBC Department of Medicine Residency Program you will find all application information on the CaRMS website.
