Go (Oh) Canada

I am working toward being a licensed pediatrician in British Columbia. To accomplish this goal, I discovered I would need a fourth year of residency. With a lot of determination and effort I was able to procure a position as Chief Resident for a pediatric residency program. I knew that going back to residency would be financially challenging so I took steps to prepare myself and my sons.

I am a licensed pediatrician in Washington state and now also in New York. Part of my plan to address the anticipated financial burden was to take a moonlight job. Getting that job took considerably longer than anticipated but was ultimately achieved. I will start in November.

I am now eligible to sit the pediatric boards in Canada. It is substantially more expensive than I had anticipated.  Add to the expense the need to fly from Syracuse to British Columbia to take the written exam followed by a trip to Otowa to take the practical exams.

My second job will help somewhat but not in time. I must be registered and fees paid by January 13, 2018

I had friends suggest I try a Go Fund Me campaign so here we are. Thank you so much for your time and support. Please share this with any and everyone you know who might be able to help.
