Workshop and Training

The Faculty of Medicine provides many career and professional development opportunities to postdoctoral fellows to prepare them for careers in academic and non-academic positions. Professional development workshops and seminars are held throughout the year at the UBC Point Grey Campus, BC Children’s Hospital Research Institute, St. Paul’s Hospital, and Vancouver General Hospital.

Please visit the PDFO website to check the latest offerings of workshops and seminars organized by the UBC Postdoctoral Fellows Office.

Postdoctoral Enhanced Scholar Program

The Faculty of Medicine’s Postdoctoral Enhanced Scholar Program is designed to encourage and facilitate PDFs in transitioning to professional positions in teaching, research, business, or clinical settings through self-directed formalized training and career development activities. The program provides a certificate of completion to those FoM PDFs who engage in multiple enhanced learning opportunities that broaden their skill base. For further details see here.

The Centre for Teaching, Learning, and Technology (CTLT) focuses on professional development in teaching and learning, and scholarly approaches to curriculum and pedagogy. For more information visit here.
