Why Make a Gift ?


The UBC Sports Medicine Centre is a unique, world-class model of multidisciplinary clinical services combined with academic expertise that provides the highest quality sports injury, chronic disease and pain, and exercise-related health care for British Columbia’s active population. UBC scientists and clinicians have influenced the Sports Medicine practice around the world by pioneering innovative surgical and pain management techniques, novel physiotherapy approaches, and the use of imaging in musculoskeletal medicine. The scope and breadth of this clinical research program has grown so robust that expanded facilities are necessary.

A new, larger, state-of-the-art research, training, and clinical facility is urgently needed to replace the existing Sports Medicine Centre and to accommodate outstanding growth in the field of sports medicine.

Thanks to a generous contribution from Dr. Chan Gunn, Phase I of the new Chan Gunn Pavilion, housing the UBC Sport and Exercise Medicine Centre, is now underway. The estimated total cost of construction is $11.4 million, and UBC is seeking a total of $4.2 million in support from donors and community partners to build this life-enhancing facility to full capacity.

The Centre will include:

  • Division of Exercise and Sports Medicine
  • UBC-Gunn Intramuscular Stimulation Centre
  • Orthopaedic Surgery
  • Physiotherapy
  • Human Performance Laboratory
  • Clinical programs
