Caffeinate a Resident

In partnership with Resident Doctors of BC, the UBC Medical Undergraduate Society is excited to host Caffeinate a Resident, an opportunity for medical undergraduate students to take UBC residents doctors out for coffee to pick their brains and learn a bit about their residency programs. This is an amazing opportunity for residents to show off their specialty, to help medical students learn more about their career opportunities, and to get a free cup of coffee! The MUS is especially seeking volunteers from THESE programs.

If you are interested in participating, please submit this form by Monday, October 17th. The MUS will send you an email later this fall to match you with a medical student. Contact MUS Representative Laura Kim if you have any questions.
