Undergraduate Program Components

The Undergraduate Program administers all Family Practice courses for UBC undergraduate medical students.

Our program consists of three main components:

  1. Family Practice Continuum (1st & 2nd year)
    Students participate in the office practice of active family physicians and learn first-hand about family medicine. Positions are throughout the province.
  2. Rural Family Practice Clerkship (3rd year)
    Students gain clinical experience by working one-on-one with a rural physician at a remote location for four weeks. Positions are throughout the province.
  3. Family Practice Electives (4th year)
    Students choose from a variety of family practice rotations across the Lower Mainland and throughout the province.
