Parenting while you are working full time is always a bit of a juggling act, but parenting while in residency can be particularly tricky because of call shifts and rotations to hospitals that may be quite far from home.
Resident Doctors of BC supports residents who choose to start a family by providing educational workshops and a variety of resources to help parents-to-be make the right decisions for their families.
Our Parenting Guide (updated annually) collects all of the information below into one convenient handbook. Hardcopies are available at the Resident Doctors of BC office, or download a PDF by clicking on the image to the right.
The workshop slides on finances for parenting from the 2016 Parenting Workshop are also available for members to review.
Or watch the webinar on the right for a snapshot of the available leaves and benefits available for residents. Full details on leave and benefits can be found in the applicable sections below.
