Dear Specialist Services Committee Members:  

As we begin the process for outlining our priorities for the next three years, it is critical that our planning be informed by the voices of specialist physicians from across the province. In order to do so, the SSC is conducting a number of consultation and engagement activities to collect input and feedback from physicians and other system partners to help inform that process.

Included in these events, SSC and Specialists of BC will be jointly hosting a Specialist Symposium on January 18, 2019 at the Sheraton Wall Centre, Vancouver BC.

Discussion Topics Include:

  • Increasing efficiencies within the health system
  • Team-based care
  • Specialists’ role in dealing with chronic and complex patients
  • Physician wellness and burnout
  • Other topics identified by you

Specialists of BC will also be hosting an additional event the following morning on Saturday, January 19th. More information will be available as plans proceed.

We encourage you to please share this invitation for the Symposium with any colleagues that may be interested in attending

Registration opening soon – To be notified


There is no cost to attend, but space is limited. Physicians attending will be supported through reimbursement of travel, accommodation and for non-salaried physicians, sessional time will be paid.

Any comments or questions can be directed to Rhiannon Steele
