RDBC Awards of Excellence

The annual Resident Doctors of BC Awards of Excellence will be launching early next week! 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?

UBC Alumni Addresses

UBC has now reduced support for UBC Alumni inboxes. This has created inconsistency with RDBC emails being successfully delivered to those addresses. If you continue to use your alumni address with RDBC, please change your email address as soon as possible. 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.

Looking for Volunteers

Are you interested in being featured in an upcoming “A Day in the Life of a B.C Resident” video? The External Relations Committee is looking for volunteers for short audio-video clips to showcase who residents are and what they do, which will be directed at the B.C. public. For more information, please visit our website.

Be Featured in Resident Spotlight

Resident Spotlight, where we interview our residents about their lives, hobbies and careers is looking for volunteers! All interviews are conducted over email with ample turn around time to account for busy schedules. If you are interested in being interviewed, or know someone who you think would make for a great feature, send an email to sasha@residentdoctorsbc.ca.

Call the Provincial Workplace Health Call Centre to confidentially report an incident, exposure, or near miss at your facility.
