February 2024

This February, UBC CPD celebrates resident doctors’ dedication to enhance health care throughout the province. In recognition of Resident Doctor Appreciation Week, we are pleased to announce three recipients of the Educational Research Grants for Residents, share a brand-new coaching portal for physician residents to create their own coaching program, and encourage residents to take part in CPD learning opportunities and foster connections with peers. In addition to recently launched eLearning, we’re excited to share that the Vancouver Division of Family Practice (VDoFP) has launched in-person workshops on the best practices in team-based care. Our popular Spring Dermatology Review Virtual Series will address original topics in primary care practice, including new dermatologic therapies. We also offer a new approach to asthma and COPD therapy in the latest This Changed my Practice article. UBC CPD also welcomes two new team members and is currently recruiting a Research Associate — apply by Feb. 29.
