Chilliwack Division of Family Practice

Mini Medical School

In its ​twelfth year of running, the Annual Mini Medical School is a free information series that runs the first two Tuesday evenings in March. Community members can talk with local doctors and other health professionals about important medical topics. This series gives medical residents (i.e., up-and-coming new doctors) from the UBC Medical Residency Program the opportunity to engage and interact with community members on topics that matter to you. 

If you have a suggestion for future topics, please email Carol Van Muyen
