The Southern Medical Program (SMP) is pleased to welcome Dr. Brandy Bursey and Dr. Kaylee Milne as the new clinical skills co-directors for SMP.
Dr. Bursey is an emergency medicine physician and hospitalist at Kelowna General Hospital (KGH) and clinical instructor with the UBC Department of Emergency Medicine. Dr. Milne is a gastroenterologist and former Chief Resident with the University of Calgary who recently relocated to the Okanagan. Drs. Bursey and Milne have amassed considerable medical education experience as both lecturers and preceptors for medical students and residents. Based at the Clinical Academic Campus at KGH, they will be jointly responsible for the continued development and delivery of the Clinical Skills courses for first and second year SMP students.
At this time, we would also like to recognize Dr. Matt Petrie and Dr. Josh Williams for their extraordinary contributions to the SMP and the Faculty of Medicine. Drs. Petrie and Williams were the SMP’s first clinical skills co-directors joining the program in 2011. They were integral in the development of the Clinical Skills course for SMP students and have contributed greatly to our program’s early development and continued success. We would like to personally thank them for their years of service and look forward to their continued work as part of our esteemed clinical faculty.
