Doctors of BC announces insurance partnership with Canadian Federation of Medical Students

July 10, 2019
Doctors of BC is one of five Provincial-Territorial Medical Associations (PTMAs) who have signed a five-year agreement with the Canadian Federation of Medical Students. After extensive research, Canadian Federation of Medical Students determined that the Doctors of BC and PTMA insurance programs best addressed the unique needs of students. The agreement means the federation will exclusively endorse our insurance products with all its members.
This is good news for Doctors of BC. Doctors of BC will collaborate with CFMS to ensure student insurance continues to be comprehensive and competitive. The agreement demonstrates our commitment to educating students on how insurance is integral to their financial wellness.
