A Tribute in Memory of
Dr. Colin Thomas White



 

Dr. Colin T. White was a Pediatric Nephrologist who was at BC Children's Hospital for almost 15 years. He was a leader in his field, an innovator in the provision of care, and an educator of trainees at all levels, and most importantly, a caring and compassionate health care provider.

 

In honor of Dr. White's many years of service as a Program Director for the Pediatric Nephrology Trainees and his commitment to educating trainees, your tribute will go towards creating a BC Children’s Hospital Nephrology Trainee Travel Fund. Dr. White had always encouraged trainees to attend or present at conferences. This Travel Fund will help support UBC Pediatric Nephrology Trainees attend a Nephrology conference or meeting during their training, where they otherwise would not have been able to due to lack of funding. Attending educational conferences or meetings enhances a trainee's learning experience by presenting their research, they would have the opportunity to participate in specialized scientific sessions, and meet with other trainees and Nephrologists. A travel bursary will be awarded to a trainee annually to help cover transportation and accommodation costs for attending a Nephrology conference or meeting.

 

Thank you for your generous contribution and building a legacy in memory of Dr. Colin T. White.
