Annual funding from the Specialist Services Committee, a partnership between Doctors of BC and the Ministry of Health, allows us to provide financial support to physician-led projects. Funded projects provide opportunities to build relationships and effective communication across the physician community.
Projects address at least one of our priorities: physician wellness; physician engagement; improvement of patient and provider’s experience of care; Indigenous health, planetary health, and equity, diversity and inclusion.
