Promote and encourage wellness, work/life balance and financial literacy for Medical Residents providing frontline healthcare in our local communities.
Those who care for others in our community also require others to care for them. We are committed to providing financial literacy and access to confidential personal and family counselling because they are necessary in ensuring that the well being of BC Medical Residents are taken care of.
