UBC CPD supports physicians in their role as clinical field assessors of those enrolled in the provincial PRA-BC program (an alternative route to licensure in BC for qualified internationally-educated physicians). We prepare assessors for the 12-week Clinical Field Assessment (CFA) of PRA-BC candidates.
