Community-Based Clinical Faculty & Distributed Teaching Sites

In 2016, our pediatric residents voted the teaching faculty at Surrey Memorial Hospital the “Best Service of the Year”.

BC is widely recognized for its distributed medical school. The expansion began in 2004 in partnership with the provincial government, academic partners and the health authorities. The Department of Pediatrics is highly appreciative of the great work done by pediatricians across the province as UBC undergraduate medical studentteachers at the four campuses: the Vancouver-Fraser campus in Vancouver and the lower mainland; the Island Medical Program in Victoria, a partnership with the University of Victoria; the Northern Medical Program in Prince George based at the University of Northern British Columbia; and the Southern Medical Program at the UBC Okanagan campus in Kelowna.

We would also like to acknowledge the important role that virtually all BC paediatricians play as highly valued teachers in the UBC pediatric postgraduate medical education program. Indeed clinical rotations in community-based practice are a valuable core component of the pediatric residency program. While the details are reviewed and often revised on an annual basis, the Vancouver-based pediatric residents have mandatory rotations in Surrey (R1 and R3 years) and in Kamloops or Kelowna (R2 year). Selective rotations in the R1 year are offered in Langley, Abbotsford, Prince George and Nanaimo and in the R4 year at Royal Columbia Hospital NICU in New Westminster or the BC Women’s Hospital NICU and 8-week selective rotations in Langley, Abbotsford, Prince George, Nanaimo, Victoria and Kelowna. In addition to the above sites, elective experiences are available at Lion’s Gate Hospital (North Vancouver), Richmond General Hospital, Chilliwack, Penticton. The Victoria-based UBC pediatric residency program began in in 2015, enrolling two first year CaRMS-matched residents annually. The residents in the Victoria program may choose elective rotations in Cranbrook or Powell River.

2019 marked the beginning of a new pediatric residency program with a home-base in Prince George – the “Community impact-stream”.

The lists below include the names of pediatricians who have active UBC Clinical appointments through the Department of Pediatrics with their primary practice located in the community.

These lists were created through a joint effort between the UBC Department of Pediatrics and the BCPS Standing Committee of the BC Pediatric Society/AAP British Columbia Chapter.

Committee Members:
Dr​. Steve Noseworthy & Dr. Glen Ward (Fraser Health)
Dr. Kirsten Miller (Northern Health)
Dr. Jennifer Cutting (Interior Health)
Dr. Allison Eddy (PHSA)
Dr. Glenn Robertson (Vancouver Coastal)
Dr. Keith Menard (Island Health)
