A Farewell to the Outgoing Board of Directors

On Wednesday, August 26, we said farewell to several members of our Board of Directors as their terms ended, and welcomed new Directors for the upcoming year. We would like to take this time to thank our outgoing members: Dr. Nicholas Monfries, Dr. Meriem Latrous, Dr. Patrick McDonald, Dr. Geoff Frost, and Dr. Chantal McFetridge. We deeply appreciate all the skills, creativity, and work they have brought to RDBC and to residents in BC during their time with us. We have asked them to offer some last words to the membership about their time on the Board. Thank you for your time as our Directors!

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.
