Training physicians in the north, to practice in the north.
The Northern Medical Program (NMP) is part of the Faculty of Medicine at the University of British Columbia (UBC). This distributed medical program was the first of its kind in North America and has proven to be a highly successful model of education. Through UBC's Admissions Office, thirty-two medical students are welcomed into the NMP every year and arrive at the beautiful University of Northern British Columbia campus in Prince George each January.
The NMP needs physician teachers who can offer inspired, meaningful education that will encourage students to eventually practice in BC’s northern, rural and remote communities.
For more information on how to join the Northern Medical Program Faculty, please visit the Northern Medical Program website.
Teaching opportunities can take place at the UNBC campus, University Hospital of Northern BC in Prince George, Mills Memorial Hospital in Terrace, Fort St. John Hospital, or in physicians’ offices across BC.
