Vanderhoof Doctor Receives Award
A Vanderhoof physician has been honoured with the Rural Family Physician of the Year Award from the BC College of Family Physicians of Canada.
Dr. Sean Ebert says while he feels priveleged to receive the award, he feels he does what any other rural doctor has to do.
"I think partly it's the breath of rural practice. Most of us in the small communities do extra work outside of our family practices. We often do emergency, I also do some anesthesia and a little bit of surgery, and we're all involved in some aspects of education. I'm also involved in some administrative work right now with the Northern Health Lakes/Omineca area."
Ebert says while small town practice can be very challenging, it's very rewarding.
Dr. Ebert has been working in Vanderhoof for 15 years, and he sees himself in the community for another 15.
