Due to B.C. Public Health COVID-19 directives and the March 13th UBC Faculty of Medicine decision to place an indefinite hold on all clinical placements, clinical externships are not occurring as planned. Clinical educators who were previously attached to a student on a spring/summer externship have been advised of the status of their particular placement. We will be communicating relevant updates on the status of placements to Clinical Educators.
Please feel free to contact us directly as well.
Where are we sending our students?
Each and every year, at least 192 Major Externships and 48 Minors happen. All students are required to relocate outside the Greater Vancouver Area for at least 2 Externships. Take a look at all our Externship sites for 2015 to 2019. Is your site here?
