Dr Sarah Broder shares:

"I came over 20 years ago to do a locum and I never left. This community is wonderful because I am supported in my desire to be a half time physician and with the freedom that provides, I have taken on medical leadership roles and supervise residents in both General Internal Medicine and Family Practice. I have the best of the academic world with the freedom to live somewhere that I can hike right out my back door. Here in the Okanagan Valley, I have found a great work-life balance. I live in an outdoors enthusiasts paradise and I pinch myself regularly that I get to practice here too"

We are excited to add passionate and hardworking experienced candidates or new graduates to our team at PRH.
