July 2019
Dr. George Wang
University of Calgary

I grew up in Toronto and spent my undergraduate years studying pharmacy at the University of Toronto. I then moved down the road to complete medical school at Western University in London, Ontario. I was very fortunate to join the Department of Anesthesiology, Perioperative and Pain Medicine at the University of Calgary for my residency training last year. During my first year, I had the honour of being a Chief Resident for the Rockyview PGY-1 program where I had chance to work with excellent colleagues and contribute to our growing community.
Outside of medicine, I enjoy running, cycling, hiking and swimming in the summer and skiing and skating in the winter. I also enjoy cooking up a storm in the kitchen and sharing stories with friends over a good meal.

 Colleagues had this to say about Dr. George Wang:

“George was one of the PGY-1 Rockyview Program Chiefs and he went above and beyond in uniting the Rockyview program. He has opened his own house and regularly invites other resident physicians to take part in communal meals. He is also smiling and happy during the hardest of rotations. He takes the time to listen to his colleagues and checks in to ensure they are doing well. The Calgary PGY-1 year would not have been the same without him.”

Congratulations Dr. George Wang!
