I became an emergency physician in 1986 after passing necessary exams / evaluating and licensing exam.
We lived in a beautiful town of Corner Brook, on the west coast of island of Newfoundland for almost 9 years.
In order to become a family physician I had to go through 2 years of training at Memorial Univ. in St. John’s … the most eastern part of North American continent.

Hobbies were a significant part of my life. I played soccer for years. Guitar playing – and later – singing with piano were important elements in coping with professional duties.
We travelled extensively. One can not forget relaxing times at sunny beaches / playing volleyball… / and very intense evening dances with my wife at the resort.
