Resident Resources

A Hub for Information

With so much to learn and in so little time, it’s easy to be overwhelmed with new information as a resident. This page is intended to be a one-stop-shop for all the resources that a resident needs to be successful. Whether you’re a freshly graduated physician entering residency, or a PGY5 veteran of the program, there will always be something useful you can find here.

COVID-19 Vaccine Information

“I’m a resident, does the UBC COVID-19 Rapid Testing Program apply to me?”

No. Medical residents are not required to complete the declaration or testing, and should continue to follow the rules of the health authority in which they work. However, residents who are going to attend UBC’s Vancouver or Okanagan campuses (perhaps to attend academic events, for example) will be required to complete the Vaccination Status Declaration and do COVID-19 rapid testing as applicable.

“Where can I get vaccinated quickly?”

You can visit the BC Government website to find a constantly updated list of all mobile and drop-in vaccination sites across the entire province.
