We need the community’s support to educate the next generation of doctors. Whether you help train our students as a member of the Patient Program, aid their personal and professional development as a physician mentor, or improve their learning, teaching, and research opportunities with a financial donation, you’re making an invaluable contribution to medical education on Vancouver Island.

Join the Patient Program

As a member of the Patient Program, you’ll help medical students develop many important skills, such as history-taking, hands-on exams, connecting with patients in a respectful, empathetic manner, and more.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all participants will contribute to the Patient Program virtually until further notice. Please email our Patient Program Coordinator to learn more.
