Why You Should Practice Here
What does it take to practice medicine in BC?
Located in the traditional and unceded territory of the Skwxwú7mesh Nation and the shíshálh Nation, and strung along BC’s magnificent, mainland coast, the Sunshine Coast provides opportunities for physicians to practice diverse aspects of medicine in a setting of beaches, lush forests, deep harbours, and welcoming communities. All of this within easy reach of Vancouver’s urban amenities.
“When we first moved here it was a surprise. There are lots of microbreweries and a new, younger, demographic. There’s lots to do here, but it’s a quieter lifestyle.”
Dr. Rahul Gupta
For those who enjoy the adventure of the outdoors on water, woodland trails or snowshoe/cross-country skis, the communities of Gibsons, Roberts Creek, Sechelt and Pender Harbour are blessed with more sunny days than either the Fraser Valley or Metro Vancouver, while also providing the small town comforts so important to family.
“I love getting out and enjoying the outdoors and being a very short drive to work, my kid’s school or friends. I can go hiking with my dog in the mountains and then go to work.”
Dr. Julie Baxter
