Department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology


The UBC Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology consists of faculty, management, support staff, fellows and residents, distributed at a number of sites in British Columbia.

Faculty consists of clinicians and scientists who have appointments at UBC, either clinical appointments or grant tenure/track appointments. "Fellows" are specialist physicians undergoing extra education and training in a subspecialty area of the discipline of obstetrics and gynaecology. Residents are physicians undergoing further education towards specialist certification in obstetrics and gynaecology.

The Department maintains 3 offices in Vancouver, with the executive office at BC Women's Hospital and other offices at Vancouver General Hospital and St. Paul's Hospital.


Department of Radiology
  The UBC Department of Radiology is the only academic Radiology Department in the province. It provides  extensive teaching to medical students, radiology and nuclear medicine residents, radiology fellows, as well as residents in other specialties. 

  NeuroDevNet, a Canadian Network of Centres of Excellence (NCE), is dedicated to understanding brain development and to helping children and their families overcome the challenges of neurodevelopmental disorders. Our Network investigators seek to shed light on the causes of neurological disorders, and to share this knowledge to health care professionals, policy makers and communities of interest. With our partners in academia, the community, not-for-profit sector, industry, and government, NeuroDevNet works across traditional disciplinary boundaries and sectors to ensure our findings are translated into tangible diagnostic, preventative, therapeutic, social, economic and health benefits for all.

The Canadian Pediatric Surgery Network (CAPSNet) is a multi-speciality Canadian collaborative established in 2005 to enable systematic study of the two most common structural birth defects encountered by pediatric general surgeons: gastroschisis (GS) and congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH).
  NAFTNet (the North American Fetal Therapy Network) is a voluntary association of medical centers in the United States and Canada with established expertise in fetal surgery and other forms of multidisciplinary care for complex disorders of the fetus. The NAFTNet initiative is funded, in part, by the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
