The Island Medical Program opened its doors to its own Medical Student and Alumni Centre on January 30. Located on the 2nd floor of the Coronation Annex at Royal Jubilee Hospital, students and alumni finally have a space to call their own.
The MSAC IMP room features board room style chairs and tables, lounge space to relax, kitchenette and video-conference capabilities. This special room, is a space to study, relax, socialize with classmates and colleagues, connect to others across the province and most importantly, is there to help build a strong community and network that will assist students with their careers in medicine.
MSAC IMP is a social and recreational space dedicated to medical students & alumni. Victoria is the second medical site at UBC to secure a MSAC space, and it is hoped that our students and alumni in Kelowna and Prince George will also have a similar space one day. A lot of hard work went into the creation of MSAC IMP and sincere gratitude is sent to David Hardwick, MD’57, Ian Courtice, MD’84 & Dr. Oscar Casiro (Hon.), as well as the Medical Alumni Association and alumni who continue to support MSAC’s & students annually.
