Resident Doctors of BC’s Strategic plan expires in 2016. As the Board of Directors prepares to create the new strategic plan for 2016 – 2019 they are looking for feedback from the general membership as to where you envision this organization going in the next 3 – 4 years.

To provide your suggestions on the areas you would like to see the organization focus, please visit the Strategic Planning Consultation page in the members section.
The first 20 responses will receive a $10 coffee card.
