The Southern Medical Program (SMP) is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Elizabeth McCoid as Site Director, Integrated Community Clerkship (ICC), Trail effective September 1, 2016.
Dr. McCoid is a family physician and clinical instructor with the UBC Department of Family Medicine. Over the past five years, Dr. McCoid has effectively supported the expansion of medical education opportunities across the Kootenay Boundary region. Beginning with the launch of the Trail ICC Program in 2011, Dr. McCoid has served as a primary family practice preceptor and developed a true passion for the ICC model of medical education. Additionally, she has supported the development and launch of the Kootenay Boundary Family Medicine residency site as both preceptor and faculty development site lead.

At this time, we would also like to express our sincere gratitude to Dr. Cheryl Hume for her tremendous years of service for both the SMP and UBC Department of Family Practice. Dr. Hume was the driving force behind the development and implementation of the Trail ICC Program and the Kootenay Boundary Family Medicine residency site. She has been a tremendous advocate for medical education expansion in the Kootenay Boundary region and her efforts will ultimately support the long-term recruitment and retention of health care professionals for the region. We would like to acknowledge and thank Dr. Hume for her esteemed years of service.
