 Our Rotation Sites

Interior Health provides health services to a diverse population in the Southern Interior of British Columbia.  It encompasses a large geographic area, from the Thompson-Cariboo to the East Kootenays and includes large urban centres, such as Kelowna and Kamloops, as well as smaller towns and rural communities.  Given the diversity present within Interior Health, residents in our Program have the opportunity to learn in a variety of communities and practice settings.  This allows for a broad residency experience.  All of our residency learning sites are University of British Columbia-affiliated teaching sites.
