Faculty of Medicine, Southern Medical Program

Promoting the health of British Columbians inspires all we do in the Faculty of Medicine. Driven to provide quality health care, the Southern Medical Program trains students in the BC Interior and connects future doctors with the needs of local communities.

Thirty-two dedicated medical students start their journey this year in the Okanagan. A committed team of over 400 clinical faculty members from Kelowna to Cranbrook stand behind them. Together, with our communities, these future doctors will enhance health care in regions that need them most.

What matters to you? Maybe it’s having a family doctor. Perhaps it’s a specialist in your community. Join us and the Southern Medical Program as we find solutions to issues you care about. Together we can impact and change lives in the region.
