Each day across the province, our people and partners are making incredible discoveries, forging meaningful relationships, and working to improve the health of our communities.
At the root of it all is our shared commitment to social accountability.
But what exactly does this accountability look like in action?
In the inaugural issue of Pathways — our new online magazine — we’ll take you on a journey of discovery.
You’ll read stories about our faculty, staff and students who are transforming our health systems to improve care, like Ellie Parton, a young woman from the Kwakwaka’wakw First Nation who is on the path to becoming a doctor.
You’ll also learn about our key impact numbers and hear from Dr. Granger Avery, President of the Canadian Medical Association, about the social responsibility of universities in contributing to the health of our communities.
