On this episode of First Year Diaries, I am joined by Dr. Mike Kirlew, a rural family and emergency medicine physician from Sioux Lookout in Northern Ontario. I asked him about how he ended up working in a rural area, and what it is like working with scarce medical resources. Later, we discussed how a resident physician can prepare themselves for working in a rural community, and how best to transition to living in a rural area.
