AAPS Office Hours at VGH



We are delighted to announce that AAPS will be hosting regular monthly Office Hours at Vancouver General Hospital!


Member Services Officer Ashkon Hashemi will be at VGH the first Thursday of each month from 8:30am–4:30pm in room DHCC 4115. 

Make an appointment to discuss a workplace issue, drop by to ask a quick question about AAPS, or provide some feedback. Remember, your conservations with AAPS are confidential, we offer professional workplace advice that is in your best interest, and no question is too small.

Our hope is that monthly Office Hours will give you a chance to have your questions resolved promptly, learn more about your professional association, and get to know the AAPS staff.
