“I am beyond excited to be returning home to BC to join the UBC Emergency Medicine family. The UBC EM program has so much to offer, but the people made this program my top choice. Our program director has a reputation for being kind, supportive, and accommodating, a reputation that he has lived up to. Moreover, the residents were incredibly open, welcoming, and engaging, something that has made my transition from Kingston to Victoria easier. It is an honour and a privilege to be continuing my training here in BC.”

Riley Reel | Vancouver Island Site

“I am absolutely thrilled to join the UBC Emergency Medicine family! Born and raised in BC, I could not imagine training anywhere else. During my EM electives at the UBC sites, the mentorship I received from preceptors and residents assured me that I will have the support to learn, grow, and thrive as an EM resident. Outside the emergency department, you’ll find me exploring the island, fostering my emotional attachment to the ocean, and pushing the limits of my max heart rate on Mount Doug.

“Emergency medicine captivated me for numerous reasons. Most importantly, I often thoroughly enjoyed my shifts and left feeling like I had really made a difference! Moreover, when considering where to pursue training in EM, UBC interior really impressed me! Kelowna EM displayed a very supportive and energetic group. After conversing with the group since match day, I am thrilled to soon be part of this close-knit community – and to become an excellent and compassionate emergency doctor, alongside my two awesome co-residents. Bring on the adventure!”

I am looking forward to continuing to be supported, challenged, and surprised on every shift in the ER.”
