The NBMS maintains links with dozens of residents nationwide. During your residency you continue to be a member of the NBMS. However, for this part of your medical career your collective agreement and employment interests are represented by two different associations.

The Maritime Resident Doctors represents resident physicians affiliated with Dalhousie University and the Fédération des médecins résidents du Québec (FMRQ) represents resident physicians affiliated with the Centre de Formation Medicale du Nouveau-Brunswick.

These organizations negotiate on your behalf to create collective agreements that outline your rights and responsibilities in the workplace. 

Although we don’t negotiate your work terms, we offer you some resident-specific services. These include:

  • Iype/Wilfred Resident Award
  • Promoting recruitment and retention Incentives
  • New-to-practice services
  • Free professional development opportunities
  • Free access to annual events

Do you have any questions or suggestions about a service that could benefit residents? Don’t hesitate to let us know by contacting Melissa Bates, NBMS Member Engagement Officer.
