All Roads Start Here

Practice in South West Nova Scotia

Why Practice Here?

All Roads Start in the Yarmouth Region of South West Nova Scotia. It’s the community that encourages its high school students to pursue health care as a profession, where medical students gain unique, practical, hands-on experience while on rotation, and where medical residents launch their careers and first encounter the challenges and rewards that are part of what make rural medicine a calling in and of itself.

It’s the perfect place to settle down, start a family and grow roots. It’s a launching pad for a medical career or even a lifestyle-centered medical practice. It’s an opportunity to become a leader within the medical community by being a preceptor or researcher and contributing to the development of medicine.

It’s a haven to reboot a highly competitive focus and engage a fresh approach to work/life balance – or better yet – a life/work balance. It’s where a mid-career shift is actually exactly what you need or it could even be the spot to get your bearings and orchestrate your transition from work life to retirement, while staying connected to your colleagues and unwinding at the same time. South West Nova is where great things start!
