Council of Program Representatives

The Resident Doctors of BC membership consists of many programs with varying interests and needs. It is the purpose of this Council to ensure that those interests and needs are addressed in the association.

Role

  1. Act as liaisons between Resident Doctors of BC and the membership; sharing information with their colleagues, and relaying issues and concerns to the Board of Directors
  2. Identify potential committee members for and participating in Resident Doctors of BC internal Committees
  3. Provide cross-program information sharing and networking opportunities

Does your program have an open seat?

If your program representative is listed as “open,” this means we did not receive a representative nomination during the official nomination period, and no one has stepped forward since then to claim the seat. If you are interested in taking on the role of program representative, please contact the Resident Doctors of BC office at info@residentdoctorsbc.ca.
