VANCOUVER, Feb. 22 /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.
