The BC College of Family Physicians (BCCFP) is pleased to invite all medical students in BC to the 2022 Virtual Medical Student Conference on Saturday October 22, 2022 from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm.
Last year, about 200 students registered for the conference. “It was exciting to listen to the different family physicians talk about their work because it really reinforced for me, that I can design my practice based on my interests and the lifestyle that I want,” said one conference participant.
All attendees will receive a $20 Uber Eats gift cards immediately after the conference.
A special thank you to the 2022 Family Medicine Interest Group for their assistance in planning this event.
