The Island Medical Program
The Island Medical Program (IMP), based at the University of Victoria, was established in 2004 as part of a unique provincial plan to increase the number of new physicians in British Columbia and encourage them to establish their practices in under-served areas of the province. The IMP is one of four distinct geographical sites of the distributed UBC MD Undergraduate Program, the others being the Northern Medical Program at UNBC, the Southern Medical Program at UBC-Okanagan and the Vancouver Fraser Medical Program at UBC-Vancouver. The distributed UBC MD Program was the first of its kind in North America and has become a model for similar efforts elsewhere.
The Division is the academic and basic science structure that supports medical education and research.
