Medical Students


The Division of Endocrinology is an active participant in the Endocrinology & Metabolism Block of the UBC 2nd year undergraduate curriculum (FMED).  Division members and Fellows act as preceptors in the problem-based earning sessions and provide lectures to the undergraduate class.

Division members at St. Paul’s and Vancouver General Hospitals are also actively involved in 3rd and 4th year undergraduate electives, providing clinical instruction in outpatient clinics and inpatient hospital management, as well as presenting formal teaching sessions to the senior students throughout the year. Approximately 5-10 students are accepted per year.

Some division members serve as attending physicians on General Internal Medicine Clinical Teaching Units and are involved in teaching 3rd and 4th year medical students on the medicine wards.
