HIGHLIGHTS

This residency program is for 2 years.


Program length of training does not exceed the Royal College or College of Family Physicians of Canada standard.



Introduction

The Vancouver Fraser Site offers residents the unique combination of high level and specialized experiences available in Greater Vancouver referral hospitals and the first contact, primary care experiences of smaller hospital and community practices within the Lower Mainland. Residents learn in primary care focused environments but have access to tertiary care experience. We provide full service training with a focus on family physician intra-partum Obstetrics if the resident so desires. Being able to tailor your second year to your learning needs is an asset of our site.
