A mentorship program that offers hands-on maternity experience

The GPSC is continuing to accept applications until June 1, 2015 for its Maternity Care for BC (MC4BC) program. Family physicians interested in training and for support for low-risk maternity services are encouraged to participate in the program, which offers mentorship, hands-on experience, and financial support. The self-directed program is designed for family physicians to begin, maintain, or reintroduce obstetrical care into their practices.

Of the program participants so far, nearly 100% of those polled agreed that MC4BC is an important support to family physicians by enhancing the care they provide to patients, and that MC4BC increased their confidence to perform obstetrical deliveries.

To apply or for further details about the program, e-mail the Program Administrator at gpsc.mc4bc@doctorsofbc.ca.
