For over 50 years, BC Family Doctors has generously supported UBC students through the BC Family Doctors Bursary in Family Medicine. This summer, two deserving family practice medical students received bursaries to pursue their passion for family medicine.
Since 1972, the bursary has provided 81 awards, totalling $79,890 in support of 81 students. Awards like these encourage family medicine students to achieve their dreams.
Every year, two bursaries of $2,000 each are made available through an endowment established by BC Family Doctors. The bursaries provide assistance to fourth year students with demonstrated financial need who have been matched through the Canadian Resident Matching Service (CARMS) to a family medicine residency program in British Columbia. The bursaries are made on the recommendation of the UBC Faculty of Medicine, in consultation with Enrolment Services.
Your membership dues have helped us make a difference in their lives. Thank you.
