Endocrinology & Diabetes

We are committed to the training of medical students, pediatric residents and endocrinology subspecialty residents.
Clinical rotations

The UBC Division of Pediatric Endocrinology offers 1-month clinical rotations for medical students, pediatric residents and endocrinology fellows. In general, UBC students and residents are given priority over non-UBC Canadian-trained trainees. We cannot accommodate non-Canadian-trained students or residents at this time.

For more information on doing a clinical rotation with us:

  • For UBC medical students, a 1-month clinical rotation is offered for 4th-year students only. This is organized through the usual rotation request channels.
  • For non-UBC, Canadian-trained medical students, a 1-month clinical rotation may be available, space permitting. Visit the UBC Visiting Student Elective Program (VSEP) page for more information about applying. Applications are made through the AFMC Student Portal; the specific criteria for UBC electives are here. In general, you must be in the final year of your medical studies to apply.
  • For UBC/BCCH pediatric residents, a 1-month rotation is mandatory in the first year, and a second elective rotation is possible in the third or fourth year.
  • For non-UBC, Canadian-trained pediatric residents, a 1-month elective may be available, space permitting. Visit the UBC Postgraduate Education Visiting Electives page for more information about applying.
