"I don't think we could have lucked into a better situation than our life and work in Kamloops. The hospital work is varied and interesting and the culture in health care here is second to none in terms of collegiality and a supportive team mentality. Work aside, the outdoor activity opportunities are endless and accessible 12 months of the year."

On the professional side, it is an exciting time in Kelowna with an evolving Internal Medicine representation and opportunities for involvement with the UBC Southern Medical Program."

"Living and working in Vernon has exceeded my expectations in every way. The natural beauty is a constant reminder to focus on what’s important in my personal life. The access to year round world class mountain and water sports is unparalleled. The hospital is incredibly efficient and pleasant to work in. Somehow I have found myself  improving my work life balance while simultaneously increasing my income. My wife and kids love it here too and I’m so grateful I had the opportunity to move to this special community. We finally feel like we have come home."
