Congratulations to our 2019 Silver Anniversary Award Recipient:

Dr. Donna McLachlan, MD’94

Dr. McLachlan has been a family doctor for 25 years, working in the military, Downtown Vancouver, and a stint in a small town in Australia.  She loves Family Practice. To her it is all about connection and she is thankful for patients for allowing her to be part of the important journeys in their life from birth to death. She is very proud of her contribution in the last few years to launching the Family Practice Maternity Care clinic at St. Paul’s Hospital and her involvement in teaching over the last few decades. Despite the challenges of the last year, she is grateful for the opportunity to care for her patients and is proud of her medical colleagues and the ingenuity and resilience they have demonstrated in the pandemic.



The award will be given to a member of the MD class in recognition of their 25th Anniversary at either their 25h Anniversary reunion or the UBC MAA AGM and Awards Ceremony.
