The UBC Rural Continuing Professional Development (RCPD) Program aims to provide accessible and relevant education to physicians and other health care providers who live in rural and remote areas of British Columbia (BC). Our goal is to improve rural patient health by offering collaborative and innovative CPD to rural health care providers.

Our team offers a variety of multi-modal learning opportunities, including:

  • Travelling skills-based courses
  • Small-group community workshops and practice-based learning
  • Mentoring opportunities
  • Equipment loans
  • Provincial videoconference rounds
  • Online journal clubs
  • Free evening webinars

The RCPD team also conducts a variety of research and evaluation activities related to the provision of medicine in rural BC. These activities inform much of our educational programming and ongoing quality improvement. We collaborate with a variety of stakeholders who are invested in supporting those who provide healthcare to individuals living in rural BC communities. Our work is guided by a Rural Medical Advisory Committee and is supported by the Rural Coordination Centre of BC.

Please contact us if you are interested in learning more about our program or if you would like to invite one of our courses to your community.
