Clinical Faculty

Nearly 700 Clinical Faculty members provide valuable teaching and administrative service to the Department of Psychiatry’s education programs and related activities across all regions of the province. The Department is committed to strengthening alliances with our clinical faculty, community, and Health Authority partners, and fostering the engagement of our clinical faculty as we focus on broadening our educational programs and forging partnerships across BC and Canada.

If you are a practicing psychiatrist or a registered healthcare professional who is interested in applying for a clinical faculty appointment in order to contribute to the Department of Psychiatry’s education program, please visit Appointment Eligibility and Requirements and Applying for a Clinical Faculty Appointment for further information and instructions.

Accreditation standards require all clinicians and healthcare practitioners to hold a UBC clinical faculty appointment in order to teach and assess UBC students and residents.

Applicants are also encouraged to review the UBC Faculty of Medicine Policy on Clinical Faculty Appointments, the Memo of Changes to the Clinical Faculty Application Process (October 2020),  and the Clinical Faculty Compensation Terms for further information.


Please note that all clinical faculty members must submit an Annual Report to Bree Wilson, Assistant HR Manager,  Department of Psychiatry, Administration Office 2C1-2255 Wesbrook Mall  by October 1st of every year.
