Outdoor lifestyle I like and a desire for a lot of quality time with my family
Whitehorse was definitely where I decided to establish myself and raise my kids.
After graduating, I practiced as a locum in different countries and provinces for 5 years, between large cities tertiary centers to small village clinics in the Outback. These diverse experiences reinforced how I wanted to practice. Combine this with the outdoor lifestyle I like and a desire for a lot of quality time with my family, Whitehorse was definitely where I decided to establish myself and raise my kids.
In ten years here, I never wasted a minute in traffic! It is easy to keep a healthy life.
Mountain/road biking, hiking, fishing, climbing, swimming, kayaking, golfing, canoeing, x-country/downhill skiing, running, kite skiing and much more is accessible within minutes from town. Imagine the dream when you are on call! Seldom when the weather is not agreeable, we have a wonderful sports complex.
As far as practicing, being the regional hospital for the Yukon, we can bring the work of a General Practitioner to a different level of our choice. Over the years my work here became a share between ER, inpatient care/ICU, my own practice as a GP and a collaborative team caring for obese patients.
Under the midnight sun we have more patients for you to see! Come and visit us! You might end up becoming a sourdough!
