Scholarships

A generous philanthropic gift made in 2017 established the UBC Faculty of Medicine Clinician Investigator Scholarship to create more opportunities for UBC’s physicians-in-training to pursue graduate studies. The scholarship will be available to residents entering UBC’s Clinician Investigator Program.

The UBC Faculty of Medicine Clinician Investigator Scholarship covers the entire cost of the resident’s salary and benefits for two years. It is paid out at set intervals. Clinician Investigator Program scholars will be supported while they are enrolled in graduate training. One scholarship will be awarded each year.

The scholarship is available to residents who meet the following criteria:

  • A medical resident training at UBC who received their MD at a Canadian Medical School
  • A Canadian citizen OR permanent resident living in BC

Residents who receive the UBC Faculty of Medicine Clinician Investigator Scholarship must complete their graduate work at UBC. The recipient must pursue research in biomedical or biological sciences or bioengineering through the Faculty of Medicine’s graduate programs, resulting in an MSc, PhD or MD/PhD.

Eligible residents will automatically be considered for this scholarship upon their application to the UBC Clinician Investigator program. No additional application is required.
