Governance

Resident Doctors of BC - structure

Resident Doctors of BC is governed by a Constitution and By-laws. It is led by a Board of Directors that is elected annually by its membership. As there are far more programs than positions on the Board, the organization maintains the Council of Program Representatives who report to the Board issues and concerns from within their program, to ensure all programs are represented and heard. To address specific areas within the organization there are a number of internal committees in which we encourage members to participate.

Resident Doctors of BC also works with a number of affiliates to ensure resident interests are represented in other organizations, and have formal resident representation on a number of external committees.
