May Wellness Month

Happy May Wellness Month! Our annual month dedicated to resident wellness will not be stopped, even by social distancing. This year we are bringing you all-virtual ways to participate and win prizes, including a $100 Skip the Dishes gift card. To see what’s happening each week, read our May overview. To see how you can win a daily $25 gift card to one of five retailers, or the $100 Skip the Dishes gift card, read on about our month-long draws.

Virtual Tax Clinics

Next week’s wellness theme is finances, dedicated to our Virtual Tax Clinics! We were very disappointed to have to cancel our annual clinics back in March, but FLC and MNP have stepped up and arranged for a virtual experience of this yearly event, and we are very grateful. These clinics will put you in touch with an MNP accountant to help file your taxes, and there is still time to grab any open slots or be put on the waitlist. Register here.

Zoom Hangouts

There’s still time to take advantage of our Zoom Hangouts! We are offering 1.5 hour appointments to book through our Zoom account (don’t worry, we won’t be there!) during the week nights, and two hour slots during all day weekend. You can use this time to get together to just chat, play games, study, or watch movies—it’s up to you! Use our Calendly to book a time slot.

Resident Spotlight is Looking for Volunteers

Are you familiar with Resident Spotlight? We are 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!

Resident Doctors of Canada Board of Directors

Resident Doctors of Canada is looking for interested residents to join their 2020-2021 Board of Directors. If you want to get involved on a national level in residency and advocacy, now’s your chance to apply. Nominations close this Monday, May 11. More info.
