Rural CPD

Research & Evaluation

At UBC Rural CPD, we are continually collecting quantitative and qualitative data from our learning activities to ensure we are staying connected to our rural and remote learners. We also conduct more in-depth studies to explore topics and issues that are relevant to rural healthcare practitioners. This information also helps to inform our strategic planning and direction.

UBC Rural CPD was created based on findings from a province-wide assessment of the learning needs of physicians living in British Columbia Rural Practice Subsidiary Agreement (RSA) communities.

Below are some recent examples of studies we have conducted to inform our work. If you would like any additional information about the information below, please email us at
