PTSD Research

Three of your fellow residents are conducting research on post-traumatic stress disorder in residents and need your help. Please complete this 10-minute survey by March 3rd.

Peer-to-Peer Network

Residency can be challenging in so many ways. Whether you are adapting to living in a new city, or you are feeling overwhelmed with trying to find work-life balance, there is another resident, in or outside of your program that has dealt with similar challenges and understands what you are going through. UBC Resident Wellness Office established thePeer-to-Peer Network program to connect residents to their peers who have experienced the same situations and can offer informal support. You can join the program as either a “Peer Helper” or a “Peer Helpee.” Click HERE to learn more and to sign up.
