The Undergraduate Program administers all Family Practice courses for UBC undergraduate medical students.
Our program consists of three main components:
- Family Practice Continuum - first and second year undergraduates
Students participate in the office practice of active family physicians and learn first-hand about family medicine. Positions are available throughout the province.
- Rural Family Practice Clerkship - third year undergraduates
Students gain clinical experience by working one-on-one with a rural physician at a remote location for four weeks. Positions are posted throughout the province
- Family Practice Electives - fourth year undergraduates
Students may choose from a variety of family practice rotations across the Lower Mainland and throughout the province.

The UBC Family Practice Residency Program is resourced, coordinated, and supported centrally within the Department of Family Practice, and is accredited by the College of Family Physicians of Canada.
In order to best serve residents, and provide the greatest opportunity for education and training we use a distributed model of education, involving, under one program, 10 educational sites, each providing its own distinctive strength, and particular learning opportunities. This offers residents a selection of the site which can best prepare them for the practice location they expect to work in, with the highest level of confidence in knowledge and skill.

The Midwifery Education Program is a new and unique program at UBC and the foundation for registered midwives in British Columbia and the western provinces. The program functions as an independent unit within the Department of Family Practice, Faculty of Medicine. It is unique within the Faculty of Medicine as it is the only undergraduate program which prepares graduates for direct entry into practice.
