Resident Registration

Postgraduate Medical Education (PGME) registration for the 2018-2019 academic year will begin April 16, 2018.

Resident registration is mandatory; failure to complete registration in a timely manner will result in a delay of the commencement of your training program. Please see below for more information about the registration process and tasks to be completed, and reference the 2018-2019 PGME Registration Guide for detailed instructions.

What to expect:

When registration begins, you will receive an email with a unique link to the online Resident Management System (RMS) and login instructions (note: for residents new to UBC, emails will be sent to the email address provided with your residency application). During registration, both new and returning residents will be required to update their contact information in the RMS. All UBC residents will need to activate and use a UBC-issued email address when corresponding with the PGME Dean’s Office and Programs and while using the Resident Management System.

Returning residents are required to update their contact information annually in the Resident Management System (RMS) during the registration period. Please note that letters of offer are term-based, and are only issued (and signed electronically) through the Resident Management System at the start of a UBC residency training program. You will not be required to sign a letter of offer for the 2018-2019 academic year if you signed your letter of offer electronically in the RMS in a previous academic year, and are not starting a new program in 2018-2019.

Returning residents must also remember to login to the Student Service Centre and pay their registration fee once the fee has been posted by enrolment services.
