The Dinner with Docs events take place annually in the four communities that have UBC training sites – Vancouver, Victoria, Prince George and Kelowna.
These spring events provide an opportunity for medical students to speak informally with practicing family physicians and ask questions about the profession.
So far, the 2019 dinners have allowed 136 medical students to engage with 31 family physicians and 22 residents who volunteered their time.
Dinner with Docs is part of BCCFP’s work in promoting family medicine to the family physicians of the future. Medical students can sign up through their local UBC Family Medicine Interest Group (FMIG) representative.
