Resident Spotlight is Seeking Volunteers

We’re 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. All our interviews are conducted over email, giving residents enough time to fit it into their busy schedules.
