The MD program at UBC is comprised of four geographically distinct sites:

  • Island Medical Program (Victoria)
  • Northern Medical Program (Prince George)
  • Vancouver Fraser Medical Program (Greater Vancouver)
  • Southern Medical Program (Kelowna)

Electives are distributed throughout these geographic regions into rural, community, and tertiary centres. As each elective is designed by UBC, they provide equal opportunity for clinical experience and exposure to our programs and teaching community.
