Our Mission

The University of British Columbia’s MD Undergraduate Program delivers an exemplary model of distributed medical education that prepares future physicians to collaborate with patients and their circle of support in providing culturally safe, high-quality healthcare across the population of BC, including Indigenous Peoples, people living in rural and remote communities, and people who disproportionately experience adverse health care interactions and health outcomes.  Our graduates are prepared to contribute to innovative improvements to healthcare in BC and globally.

The mission of the MD Undergraduate Program is integral to the vision of the Faculty of Medicine, “Transforming Health for Everyone,” and embodies the values of respect, integrity, compassion, collaboration, and equity.
