    Why does the IMP need teaching faculty?

    The IMP needs physicians and health sciences professionals who can train IMP students. With your leadership and support, we hope to inspire these future doctors to eventually practice in BC – especially in rural and remote communities, where healthcare needs are greatest.


    Why teach in the IMP?

    Most health professionals have the skills to teach, and they do so for a number of reasons:

    • They enjoy working with and teaching enthusiastic students.
    • They feel it's important to showcase their discipline and the communities they serve.
    • They find education adds to their day-to-day clinical work and helps to keep them up-to-date.

    We provide our students the facts, but they also need real-world experience, and they can only learn that from you – a practicing physician, healthcare provider, or educator.
