Physician Mentoring Programs

We are currently running three mentoring programs:

 

Our Rural Physician Mentoring Program is a formal, structured physician mentoring program designed specifically to address the needs of physicians who are new to rural practice in British Columbia. If you’re working in rural medicine and are interested in having a mentor, or being a mentor and passing your wisdom and experience to a new colleague, please visit ubccpd.ca/rural/mentoring or contact rural.mentoring@ubc.ca.

The Dementia Education Mentoring Program, developed in collaboration with Fraser Health Authority, is part of the three-stream Regional Dementia Strategy targeted at improving diagnosis and management of early dementia in the Fraser Health Region. This formal peer mentoring program will support formation of practical and meaningful professional relationships between specialists, family physicians and nurse practitioners to enhance diagnosis and management of early dementia. For more information, visit https://ubccpd.ca/dementia-mentoring.

The Clinical Faculty Mentoring Pilot Program, a partnership between the Office of Clinical Faculty Affairs and UBC CPD, provides mentorship to support the career goals of UBC Faculty of Medicine (FoM) clinical faculty in the areas of administration, clinical and research settings. This eight month pilot education program and evaluation study matches junior FoM clinical faculty (mentees) with senior and more experienced clinical faculty (mentors) and will measure impacts on engagement of clinical faculty and self-identified goals of the participants. For more information, contact cf.mentoring@ubc.ca.
