“We’re excited to launch one of the first clinic models of inter-professional health care and education in the province,” says Dr. Christie Newton , a UBC Associate Professor of Family Practice. “Family practice residents, nurse practitioner trainees, and midwifery students are among those who will gain experience in collaborating with other health-care professionals to provide the best possible care to our patients. From the patient’s perspective, “members of my health-care team” will always be available.”
“This model provides an opportunity to explore different ways of both teaching and research, while being completely focused on service to patients. It also honours the enduring relationship between caregiver and patient that lie at the core of family practice,” Dr.Robert Woollard, professor of Department of Family Practice.

Provides full-service family practice care, including obstetrics and nursing home care. Special expertise available onsite from a pharmacist, pediatrician, and psychiatrist. 24-hour on-call doctor for registered patients. For individuals and families, living on the UBC campus or Lower Mainland, who want holistic, personal physician care. All ages welcomed. The clinic operates 9:00 – 5:00 pm, Monday to Friday with the exception of Thursday morning when the clinic is closed for Academic half day.
Patients will get personal attention in appointments that last 20-40 minutes to allow for training time. Because the clinic is based at UBC, university health research can be quickly translated into new diagnostics and treatment for patients. In addition, patient feed back, through advisory boards and focus groups will be incorporated into student’s learning and patient care.
New patients are welcome. For more information please contact us at (604) 822-5431
