2013 Cantonese and Mandarin Class for UBC Medical students

The most recent class was on Apr 8, 2013 (Mandarin and Cantonese).

CCMSBC Mentorship Program for UBC Medical students

The kick-off for this program was in Nov 2009. We ran a pilot of it for one year with CCMSBC board members matched with medical students, to allow students an opportunity to speak and interact with a practicing physician, and gain advice in their career path. It is intended for 1st and 2nd year medical students, and is designed to help students make a decision on their career choice. It has been running every year and has been well received by students and mentors.
