Dear students, staff and faculty,
Given recent events in Canada and around the world, we would like to acknowledge that this may be a complex and difficult time for some. At the UBC Faculty of Medicine, we strongly believe that our success is derived from the diversity of our learners, staff and faculty—many of whom have come to UBC from various parts of the world.
The excellence that UBC has achieved in education, research and clinical innovation is only possible if we all remain focused on our contract with society. Outlined in the Faculty’s new Strategic Plan: Building the Future, equity is one of four key principles that reminds us to be inclusive in all that we do as a community.
Should any learners, residents, staff or faculty require any assistance during this challenging period, please reach out to your unit heads or student/resident services as soon as possible.
We are here for you,
Dermot Kelleher, MD, FRCP, FRCPI, FMedSci
