September 11, 2014, brought Doctors of BC, the CMA, and MD Physician Services to UBC to welcome first-year medical students, or the Class of 2018, into their influential physician community at the annual UBC Orientation Event. Students came for the sought-after green backpacks, but they left with knowledge about our extensive services, awareness of our commitment to members, and excitement about what the future may hold as a Doctor of Tomorrow.
Doctors of BC President, Dr William Cavers lead the presentation to students and inspired them to get involved with their association. CMA's Early Career Specialist, Greg Lee Son, explained the history of the ever popular medical student backpacks. Afterwards, students received their backpacks and lunch, signed up for membership and insurance, and took photos next to the new Doctors of BC backdrop. By the end of the day it was obvious from the many smiles and laughter that students recognized they’re better together with Doctors of BC.
