**Sent on behalf of Dr. Kathryn Fung, Program Director, Undergraduate Psychiatry Medical Education**
In large part due to the pandemic, our undergraduate medical education program (UGE) has encountered situations in which we are in need of preceptors willing and able to supervise Year 3 or Year 4 undergraduate medical students virtually for a clinical experience or a short research project/activity. Most of these students may be in isolation or awaiting test results and thus not able to participate in person until cleared.
If you are a faculty member (an MD with a clinical faculty appointment, or academic GFT faculty) working anywhere in BC and are interested in supervising a student virtually on an as-needed basis, we invite you to add your name to our “Virtual Preceptor Database” by completing an online sign-up form (link below).
As situations will arise on short-notice, we will contact you by phone and email so you can accept or decline at that time. We are also able to speak to you prior to taking on a student if you have any questions.
Database sign-up form: https://ubc.ca1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_2t2rNG1nFfTtIwK
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
Kathryn Fung, MD FRCPC
