Introductory Module

Residents may be required to teach early on in their residency. To help new residents gain confidence in their teaching approach, the Office of Faculty Development has created the Introduction to Teaching Module for Residents as Teachers. Videos, knowledge checks and reflective questions help new residents develop their teaching skills.

The module is mandatory for all residents new to UBC. All incoming residents will receive email instructions on how to complete it. The module is updated annually based on residents’ feedback.
