“One curriculum, many sites.”
The UBC Department of Family Practice Postgraduate Residency program delivers uses a distributed model of education, delivering one curriculum at 17 educational sites. Each training site provides its own distinctive strength, and particular learning opportunities. Distributed education offers residents a choice of training sites and experience which will best prepare them for the practice location they expect to work in, with the highest level of confidence in knowledge and skill. Several of the sites train residents to provide service in rural communities.
All UBC family practice residents must complete an eight week rotation in rural medicine as part of their training. Residents may access to the Rural Resident Rotation Schedule to see which communities are currently accepting trainees. A map of the community and postgraduate training sites is available on the Department of Family Practice web site.
