VANCOUVER, Feb. 21, 2012 /CNW/ - The 11th Annual National Resident Awareness Day will be celebrated across the
country on February 21st, 2012. The Professional Association of Residents of British Columbia
(PAR-BC) is proud to help raise public awareness of resident physicians
in BC's healthcare system. Resident physicians are often the first
point of contact for patients in both urban and rural British Columbia.
"B.C.'s resident physicians are a diverse group of doctors who provide
exemplary patient care in hospitals and clinics across the province.
They are the future of medicine in Canada," says Dr. Joanna Oda,
President of PAR-BC. Resident physicians are graduates from medical
school and are pursuing specialized training in fields such as family
medicine, surgery, emergency, and pediatrics.
PAR-BC will be celebrating the event with a large media campaign that is
designed to spread the message that resident physicians are the future
face of medicine.
The Professional Association of Residents of British Columbia is an
organization that represents all resident physicians in BC. We strive
to improve members' educational experiences, advocate for equity in
contractual matters, and foster health and wellness.
