MD/PhD Program

The primary mission of the UBC MD/PhD Program is to train and nurture future clinician-scientists who excel both in clinical medicine and basic sciences. The program of study is built upon the regular MD curriculum, but it is further "customized" to meet the unique career goals of individual students based on their previous research experience, and chosen medical field of expertise. Thus, graduates of the MD/PhD Program are trained as competent physicians as well as skilled scientists. The combined MD/PhD degree should adequately prepare the candidates to pursue a research-intensive track of residency and postdoctoral training in a specialty or discipline of their choice, ultimately leading to a competitive and independent clinical investigative career.

Clinician Investigator Program

The UBC Clinician Investigator Program is designed to provide a combined research and clinical training stream for residents in Clinical Specialty Programs at UBC. The aim is to encourage young physicians to pursue careers as clinician-scientists and to renew the clinical academic faculty at UBC and other Canadian Medical Schools.

This aim will be accomplished by providing clinical trainees two years of protected research fellowship. The UBC CIP follows the guidelines of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC) and is approved by the RCPSC.
