April 2020
Dr. Robert Hurowitz
Internal Medicine
University of Alberta

I grew up in Toronto with two physician parents and was always inspired by their professional excitement. Following in their footsteps, I went to Queen’s University for my undergraduate degree in Life Sciences. In 2013, I moved to Edmonton for medical school and now I’m an adopted Albertan (except I remain the insufferable Leafs fan in every hockey interaction). I was given the opportunity to continue training with the Core Internal Medicine Program at the University of Alberta and I’ve remained motivated by my incredibly supportive and academically talented colleagues.

Out of the hospital, I spend my time playing hockey, long-distance running, hiking, snowboarding and back country split-boarding and looking for every chance to get out to live music events.

In July I will be starting the next portion of my medical journey in Calgary to join their General Internal Medicine Fellowship with a special interest in Point-of-Care Ultrasound. I will be joined by my partner, Kelly, and our family of two cats, a horse and undoubtedly a dog will show up shortly. Don’t worry: the Oilers will remain my second team and we’ll return frequently – see you at Folk Fest!

 A colleague had this to say about Dr. Hurowitz:

“Rob Hurowitz is overall an amazing physician and caring person. As a chief resident physician of Internal Medicine, he acts as a role model for junior and senior resident physicians and is an excellent support for resident physicians in need. Having worked with Rob in a supervisory role, he is so enjoyable to work with and is a keen and interested learner. He is a very well-rounded person, with a booming social life, passion for traveling and professional skiing skills!

Congratulations Dr. Hurowitz!
