Program: Pediatrics – Community Impact Stream
Year in Program: 4
I have always enjoyed working with kids and their families. Combine this with my love for medicine, and pediatrics is the perfect fit. The Community Impact stream offers a full range of exposure to general pediatrics with opportunities ranging from small northern and rural communities to tertiary level care at BC Children’s Hospital. The resident group is incredibly supportive, and I am fortunate to have found lifelong friendships through this program. Last but definitely not least, the program directors are truly dedicated to resident learning, allowing residents to pursue opportunities that are advantageous to their training, and are fierce advocates for us all. I’m grateful to be a part of this phenomenal program.
B.C. has always been home for me and I hope to one day practice in this province. It is a privilege to be able to give back to this incredible community. Nothing beats the mountain views, proximity to both beaches and snow-capped mountains and the diverse cuisine. Having had the opportunity to explore more of the province during residency training has only reaffirmed that B.C. will always be home!
I recently travelled to Haida Gwaii for an outreach trip and fell in love with the culture, views, and beautiful people. I can’t wait to visit again and explore the island further.
