The UBC Rural Continuing Professional Development (RCPD) Program is committed to supporting the learning needs of physicians and other health care providers who practice 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.

The RCPD Program offers rurally-specific continuing professional development (CPD, formerly called “CME”) programs that are community-based, interprofessional, engaging, interactive, and practical. In addition to multi-modal learning opportunities, RCPD conducts a variety of research and evaluation activities related to the provision of medicine in rural BC.

We collaborate with a variety of stakeholders who are also 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.
