Following the completion of his residency in the United Kingdom, Dr. Hugh Hindle came to Canada looking for an adventure.

Instead he found a career, and home for himself and his family in central Alberta. "We came for the countryside and the activites, and probably stayed for the people."

Today, Dr. Hindle helps to further the education of fellow rural physicians, both as a Skills Broker for RPAP, and as content curator for, a website that provides teaching & learning resources to Canadian rural doctors.
