About Us

Doctors of BC is a voluntary association of more than 16,000 physicians, residents and medical students in British Columbia.

Our strategic framework helps us navigate our future and fulfill our purpose of making a difference, so our doctors can make theirs. 

Our Purpose – Why we do, what we do

Working together, we make a difference for BC’s doctors so that they can make a difference for patients.

Our Goals – What we must achieve

To promote a social, economic, and political climate in which members can provide British Columbians with the highest standard of health care, while achieving maximum professional satisfaction and fair economic reward.

Our Approach – How we will get there

Advocacy – for our doctors, whether through negotiations, by influencing health care system policy, helping doctors navigate professional issues that impact their ability to provide a high standard of care.

Serving – our doctors by providing them with services, benefits and supports to improve their professional experience and make a positive difference for patients.

Collaborating – with doctors and the health care system to improve the quality of patient care.

Engaging – with our doctors and assisting them to engage with the health care system, either in communities or facilities.

Understanding – our doctors and the environment in which they function.
