Announcing a brand new virtual series based on our award-winning initiative: This Changed My Practice!


This Changed My Practice (TCMP) is a free online educational initiative from UBC Continuing Professional Development. Its vision is to deliver quick summaries of impactful clinical studies, clinical pearls, and practice tips relevant to BC physicians (and beyond). TCMP articles are distributed to over 15,000 readers via email complemented with online chat forums via the TCMP website. These articles are peer-reviewed, unbiased, and practice-changing. Our readers are mostly family physicians, looking for practical, actionable, advice with clinically relevant evidence, and well-run trials to back recommendations.

To celebrate our 10th year anniversary, we have decided to compliment TCMP's asynchronous education with a live webinar series called This Changed My Practice — Live! 

Each session in the series will cover six rapid-fire topics using the following themes: clinical/science, guideline updates, physician wellness, and potpourri. Each topic will be covered in 10 minutes or less, with 5 minutes for audience questions.
