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.
