The GPSC is partnering with the SGP to host a webinar series for new-to-practice GPs about billing GPSC incentive fees in its continued efforts to support GPs to bill GPSC fees.

Inspired by the Vancouver Division’s offering and based on physician feedback, the three-part series will be available to physicians who are new to practice. For this series, a new-to-practice GP is:

  • a recent graduate (first five years post residency), or
  • new to BC (first five years), or
  • a Practice Ready Assessment doctor who is an International Medical Graduate (IMG), provisionally licensed to practice (without completing a residency in BC).

Led by physician educators, each 90-minute webinar will be cumulative and content-specific. Here are the details about each webinar:
