VANCOUVER, Feb. 21 /CNW/ - The 10th Annual National Resident Awareness Day will be celebrated across the country on February 22nd, 2011.  The Professional Association of Residents of British Columbia (PAR-BC) is proud to acknowledge the integral role of over 1070 resident physicians in BC's healthcare system and the top-notch care they provide 24 hours a day in both urban and rural British Columbia. 

"Residents are the future leaders of healthcare in Canada and will continue to work hard to promote patient safety and provide exemplary medical care," says Dr. Dennis Bhui, President of PAR-BC.  Resident physicians have successfully graduated from medical school and are pursuing specialized training in fields including family medicine, critical care, emergency, surgery and subspecialty medicine. 

Several BC hospitals will be hosting Resident Awareness Day events that are open to the public, families and welcoming of guests of all ages.

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.
