Profile - Dr. Kirk Magee

Thursday, April 25, 2019 - 3:29pm

Dr. Kirk Magee’s interest in both medicine and education was first ignited by his mom, former director of the VG school of Nursing. He may have been further influenced by his favourite TV show as a kid: Emergency.
 
However, Kirk wasn’t sure he fit the mold of “doctor” until he did an Emergency Medicine elective with Dr. Bruce McLeod. “For the first time felt like I was totally in my element.”
 
He’s still in his element 19 years later. “I love the fact that I work with a highly motivated group of individuals who perform at their best in chaotic situations when others are having the worst day of their life.
"I feel very privileged that patients give me, often a complete stranger, candid access to their lives and their stories.
 
Most of Kirk’s free time is spent with his wife, Beth and their nine-year-old son, Connell.
