Dr. Robert J. Everett
M.D., FRCPC, Clinical Assistant Professor, Department of Pediatrics, University of BC.
After spending my childhood in the Lower Mainland, and completing an undergraduate degree in Biology at Simon Fraser University, I graduated from the UBC Faculty of Medicine in 1994. After three years at the Montreal Children’s Hospital, and a final year at BC Children’s Hospital, I completed my residency training, and in 1998, joined what is now known as Fairmont Pediatrics.
As a consultant paediatrician, I enjoy caring for children of all ages. I have a particular interest in newborn care, and care of the medically complex child. In addition to my clinical work in BC, I am a visiting specialist in Pediatrics at Whitehorse General Hospital. I enjoy teaching medical students and residents, and I am a regular speaker at Continuing Medical Education conferences for family physicians. I have been honoured several times over the years with BC Children’s Hospital Family Centred Care Award.
I live in Delta along with my wife and three daughters, a dog, two cats and a ferret. My wife is a Child Life Specialist with Fraser Health. I enjoy running, playing ice hockey and golf, and driving my kids around everywhere.
