Who are we?

We are family physicians who are interested in improving primary care. We feel that local research is an important way to do that, and we would like to support research and quality improvement in our area.

As an organization, we are in the Shuswap North Okanagan Division of Family Practice. The Shuswap North Okanagan Division of Family Practice is a community-based group of family physicians working together – and with health authorities and community partners – to achieve common goals. Local research is just one of those efforts.

Dr. Poulin is a family physician in Vernon. He has interests in computing and research. He has a BSc in Molecular Genetics and a MSc in Computing Science prior to his medical degree. He continues to program regularly. He also hopes to encourage patients in the North Okananagan learn to live a healthy lifestyle that includes the outdoors.
