Faculty Development

Faculty development is an important foundation for the medical program, and although many physicians are experienced teachers, they may not have worked with medical students in the recent past.

We are developing a faculty development program that is based on what physicians in the North need and that will help develop teaching approaches that fit with busy clinical environments. If there are topics you would like us to address in these sessions, or if you would like to be invited, contact the NMP office, 250-960-6352.

Teaching Compensation for Clinical Faculty

The compensation provided for teaching will be consistent with the UBC Faculty of Medicine - however payments related to the NMP will be administered by the NMP in the form of a stipend.

Time Commitment

The time commitment for teaching will range from delivering a single lecture to serving as a tutor on weekly basis.

Physician Involvement in the Student Selection Process

As the mission of the NMP is to train physicians in the North, for the North, it is very important to select students who are well suited to living and working in rural or remote settings.
If you would like to participate, contact the NMP office at (250) 960-5165.
