Physician Recruiting in the Great White North

January 24, 2020

“In the smaller communities in Northern British Columbia, they are absolutely reliant on POCUS- there is no CT, there is no MRI- you’d have to fly someone out for those modalities.”~ Daphne Savoy

Daphné Savoy is a Physician Recruiter in Northern British Columbia (Canada) – she is passionate about life in the North. Daphné lived in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, before moving to her current home in Fort St. John, British Columbia. In her free time, Daphné enjoys fishing, spending time in the wilderness, and dreaming about having her own team of sled dogs!
