The Onboarding Committee was created to help new physicians joining Vancouver Community of Care feel welcomed and supported as they start their career. The committee is developing an Orientation Guide that provides guidance on the required paperwork as well as information on available perks. The committee hosts Meet & Greet events that allow new physicians to mix and mingle with other new colleagues and more seasoned physicians as well as meet Vancouver Acute/ Vancouver Coastal Health leaders and the Doctors of BC’s Vancouver regional advisor and advocate. A voluntary buddy system is offered to match new physicians with more senior ones working in different, yet complementary, departments.

This committee meets monthly; sessional funding is provided.
