Director’s Message

The UBC Clinician Investigator Program is an exciting opportunity for UBC residents to pursue Master, PhD or postgraduate studies through a RCPSC accredited program. The UBC CIP is a fully funded two-year program that allows UBC residents the unique opportunity to gain research experience in world-class research facilities both locally and abroad. Upon completion, the majority of our residents secure academic faculty positions. We encourage residents at all stages of their residency training to apply to our program, the deadline is December 1st of each year.
