RDBC Awards of Excellence 2023

The annual Resident Doctors of BC Awards of Excellence are HERE! Three awards are given each year to outstanding individuals in the field of medicine. Recipients receive an awards ceremony in their honour, commemoration on a wall plaque in the Resident Doctors of BC office, a personal commemorative award, and a $1000 donation to the charity/charities of their choice. If you have a co-resident or a medical educator in mind, why not submit a nomination? Deadline for submissions is on February 20.

Are You Not Receiving Emails From RDBC?

The emails sent by us (including these rounds!) can be flagged by your server as junk. Please be sure to check your Junk folder and to add us to your approved senders list. If you are using your alumni address with RDBC, please change your email address as soon as possible as UBC has reduced support for UBC Alumni inboxes. This can be done by logging in on the RDBC website and accessing your Profile. We kindly ask for assistance in passing on this message to your co-residents, to ensure it reaches those who use their UBC alumni address and may not be aware.
