Having Experience In Both Private and Public Healthcare

“Why did you decide to go private so early in your career? So actually, they’re linked. So I didn’t actually decide to go private in my career. I had no choice. I was one of those that was left out of the quota system, my first year working, so I did not have a license to practice on the island of Montreal. I had already grown up in Sherbrooke, wasn’t interested in going back, wanted to stay in the city.

So I started working in private, which actually was great. I do public healthcare now. But having experience both in the private sector and public has actually improved my public practice, ’cause I was able to bring certain things like lowering wait times, efficiencies, just customer satisfaction, those type of attitudes to the public clinic. That has turned out to work very, very well for us.”
