Resident Innovation Fund

We love resident innovation, and would love to help fund your projects. There is now less than a month left to apply for the Resident Innovation Fund! Deadline is December 14, 2020. The fund is awarded by RDBC to invest in resident projects, with up to four awards annually with a maximum of $2500 per award with one award per category. For more information on the fund and to apply, visit our website.

Movember Fundraiser Contest

Show us your ‘stache! Send in a photo of your moustache (real or fake) to info@residentdoctorsbc.ca to receive a $5 Starbucks gift card. Resident voting for best moustache will begin in December, and the winner will receive a $100 Amazon gift card. So, put on your best face and moustache and enter for a chance to win big! We will be donating $5 to the Movember Foundation for every entry we receive. The program with the most submissions will receive a paid lunch on Academic Half Day, with $25 per resident up to $500, on RDBC.

RDBC Office During COVID

The RDBC staff remains primarily working from home during this time, following provincial health orders and recommendations. Due to the limited number of staff at the office at all times, our phone lines may be busy when you call in. We encourage all residents to email in any concerns and questions to info@residentdoctorsbc.ca.

November PULSE

The November 2020 edition of the PULSE is now live. Read within for beautiful submissions from the membership, an interview with staff member Brandi about the future of RDBC events, financial planning during COVID and more. Read it on Issuu.

Resident Spotlight is Seeking Volunteers

We’re looking for volunteers interested in being interviewed, or suggestions of fellow residents who you think will make for a great feature. If you’ve got something you want to chat about, whether it be your experience in residency, a hobby or passion, or academic pursuits, send an email to sasha@residentdoctorsbc.ca to be featured in one of our Spotlights. All our interviews are conducted over email, giving residents enough time to fit it into their busy schedules.
