Associate Program Director/Site Director (Fraser)

Welcome, and thanks for visiting our website! We are proud to be the first distributed Emergency Medicine Program in Canada. No matter which site you choose for your training, rest assured that you will gain the skills necessary to practice EM, and have a great experience at the same time. UBC is a large program, but we’ve managed to maintain the “family” feeling both within each site, but also across the program as a whole.

Dr. Helen Ross, Associate Program Director, Victoria

Welcome to UBC-Vancouver Island Site! We hope you are as excited to meet us, as we are you. Combining the solid infrastructure of the Vancouver site with a fresh clinical experience in the jewel that Vancouver Island is, has been truly rewarding. The first-hand access to high acuity medicine is amazing. If you would like to combine the outdoors with a fabulous five years of training, Vancouver Island is for you.
