UBC CPD provides orientation phase 1 & 2 for new to BC physicians enrolled in the Practice Ready Assessment (PRA-BC) Program - a program providing qualified internationally educated physicians with an alternative pathway to medical licensure in British Columbia. The PRA-BC program is comprised of 2 phases: a two-part centralized assessment and the clinical field assessment (CFA) period. UBC CPD provides orientation for both of these.
