Resident Innovation Fund

We love resident innovation, and would love to help fund your projects. The Resident Innovation Fund is now accepting applications for 2020 until 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

Our Movember fundraiser contest is back for 2020! We will be donating $5 to the Movember Foundation for every entry we receive. 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!

New Call Stipends System

The rollout for the new Call Stipends system has now been completed. The old Call Stipends website is no longer taking submissions. Please submit your calls here. For assistance using the new system, please visit our FAQ. If your question remains unanswered, email us at schedules@residentdoctorsbc.ca.

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.
