Medicine

  • “It is about giving back.  When I was very young and interested in medicine, a physician shared his surgical test with me, and then later answered my questions regarding what I had read.  This led me to believe that the idea of me doing medicine was not a ridiculous idea at all”  “It is very gratifying to mentor and I see myself in them many years previously.”
    Dr. Lawrence Wiser Regina Qu’Appelle Health Region (Moosomin)
  •  “I think that the Pre-Health Professions Club provides an opportunity for budding minds to have a firsthand overview and experience of the health care system to facilitate their decision-making choice.” 
    Dr. Arbind Dubey, Regina Qu’Appelle Health Region
  • “The most frequently discussed reasons for engaging in a mentorship focus on career development for high school students, is to see broader horizons before they choose their interest.  It will eventually help in job satisfaction and retention.  It will also help in creating an environment that encourages and supports these students in what they want in life” 
    Dr. Rashmi Koul, Regina Qu’Appelle Health Region
  • “Physicians get to see the enthusiasm of youth.  I hope to allow some students the opportunity to see if medicine is a career for them”  
    Dr. Lyster Kish
  • “This is a valuable program as it exposes bright you high school students to the health professions; providing them with mentorships to help guide them and build confidence as they pursue future careers” Dr. Wendy Church, Regina Qu’Appelle Health Region 2012

Nursing

  • “It was great exposure for the student to see what community nursing is all about.”
    Raylene Witt, Regina Qu’Appelle Health Region

Nutrition

  • “I enjoyed sharing my profession with a keen high school student at a time early in their life to really consider all education/work options.  I found that the student’s rural background facilitatied a discussion around the work of a dietitian in rural communities, potentially opeining the student up to consider a job in hard to recruit and retainrural setting.”
