For Residents

Residents are both learners and educators. They are responsible for teaching medical students, resident colleagues, health care workers, and patients. Their teaching has a major impact on undergraduate, postgraduate medical education, and patient care.

Are you a resident who wants formal education on how to teach?

Do you find yourself teaching medical students, colleagues, and patients? Will you in the future?

Benefits of RaT to residents:

  • A certificate for completing the RaT program
  • Training in how to teach in the clinical setting and the classroom
  • Opportunities to apply teaching skills during your residency and as a licensed physician
  • Dedicated academic half days to learn
  • Opportunities to teach RaT session for your program

Our goal is to implement RaT across all residency programs at UBC so that all residents have the opportunity to learn how to teach. Many programs have started offering RaT to their residents. To find out your program’s RaT implementation status, please contact your program director or email us (
