Kavish Chandra BSc(Hons) MSc MD CCFP(EM)

After growing up in Northwestern British Columbia, I moved to New Brunswick to complete my
undergraduate and graduate studies at Mount Allison University. I then completed my medical
training at Dalhousie Medicine New Brunswick and residency training in Emergency Medicine
and Family Medicine at Dalhousie University.

I currently practice as an Emergency Physician with a special interest in medical education,
FOAMed and point of care ultrasound.

Outside of work, I am an avid recreational golfer and hockey player.
