Dr. Rose Shumiatcher MD, FRCPC
I completed my undergraduate degree at McGill university with majors in Anatomy and Cell Biology. Graduating from McGill with a Bachelor of Science in 2012, I returned home to Vancouver to work in a research lab studying the mechanisms of cell death in type 1 diabetes from 2012-2014. I then attended medical school at UBC and graduated in 2018. I remained in Vancouver to complete residency in pediatrics at BC Children’s Hospital, graduating in 2022.
I love the variety that Pediatrics has to offer. I am working at Fairmont Pediatrics, BC Children’s Hospital and Lions Gate Hospital. At Fairmont Pediatrics we have the benefit of following children longitudinally. At BC Children’s hospital I am working in oncology on the inpatient unit. At Lion’s Gate Hospital, I see a wide variety of children as a general pediatrician.
My partner and I live in East Vancouver with our dog, a small havanese poodle mix. Vancouver has so much to offer in terms of outdoor activities. I love hiking and skiing in the winter months and swimming in ocean during the summer. I also love to play board games and discuss topical books with my book club. In true Vancouver fashion, I am a big fan of yoga and pilates.
