Welcome to the UBC Department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology.
Our department is a provincial department dedicated to the academic mission of the distributed program of the Faculty of Medicine. Part of our mission is to provide the Province with well trained providers in all aspects of women’s health care. Our educational endeavors include the undergraduate curriculum, the residency program, fellowship programs, and a graduate education program. These programs are sited throughout the Province, including Victoria, Nanaimo, Prince George, Kelowna, Kamloops, and the lower mainland. (see Education).
Beyond teaching our specialty, we have a robust investigational program dedicated to defining the state-of-the-art. Our investigational pursuits span the breadth of the specialty from basic, to translational, to clinical, to epidemiological research. (see Research).
Of course, the heart of any academic medical program is the clinical services themselves, and our department provides excellent clinical programs in all aspects of obstetrics and gynaecology. (see Divisions). The department strives to help all obstetrician gynaecologists practicing in British Columbia to keep abreast of new clinical evidence through providing continuing medical education (see Continuing Medical Education). If you are interested in joining our team, I encourage you to look at Career Opportunities.
