UBC medical graduates are going unmatched to residency positions! Without completing residency training, these medical graduates will never be able to practice medicine and provide care to British Columbians.
Each medical graduate represents $250,000 in government spending to subsidize training. These tax dollars are wasted if medical graduates cannot obtain residency positions and complete medical training.
Each medical graduate unable to match a residency position and complete training, represents approximately 1875 British Columbians who could have had a physician.
British Columbia does not provide enough residency positions for all of its medical graduates! This is unsustainable and will inevitably lead to continued wasted tax dollars, and lost medical potential in British Columbia.
We need more residency positions for Canadian medical graduates, and in particular, medical graduates from UBC!
