CoPR Nominations

We are now seeking nominations for the 2016-2017 Council of Program Representatives (CoPR). CoPR is comprised of 1-2 representatives for each program (depending on size), and usually meets about three times a year. Representatives act as liaisons between Resident Doctors of BC and the individual programs by disseminating information to their colleagues, and bringing forward concerns to the association.

If you are interested in joining CoPR, please complete the nomination form by 12PM noon (PST) on October 10, 2016. Elections will follow if there are multiple candidates. Please note that if your program has internally elected a representative, they will still need to submit their nomination to be formally recognized by Resident Doctors of BC.
