Good morning all!
Great news! Our Abbotsford Site Resident, Dr. Louai Musa, was recently featured in Resident Doctors of BC! Here’s an excerpt from the interview:
Q: From your point of view, what are some of the benefits of training in a smaller setting than you were previously used to?
Dr. Louai Musa: One of the great things about working here is our super supportive program director, Dr. Holden Chow. Preceptors and staff also take the time to teach us and involve us with interesting cases or procedures.
Another neat aspect about training here is the flexibility to do 1 in 4 night call during the 2nd year of the program. We can do this in any area of interest to fulfill any specific learning objectives (for example obstetrics, emergency medicine, hospitalist, ICU).
We also complete a minimum of two to four months of rural Family Medicine as part of our training; I will be spending two months in Inuvik and hopefully another month in Newfoundland and Labrador. There is also a doctor here Dr. John Pawlovich that I would would like to work with because of his unique practice. Every few months he travels to Takla Landing where he works as the family doctor, and when he returns to Abbotsford he continues to take care of the patients via telemedicine.”

I’m so proud of you Dr. Musa and so is our Program Director Dr. Willa Henry (check out her tweet!)! Onward and upward!
