Chatham-Kent Health Alliance Welcomes New Family Medicine Resident

CHATHAM-KENT: November 21, 2017 – As a teaching site for the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry (Western University), Chatham-Kent Health Alliance (CKHA) is pleased to announce the arrival of a new Family Medicine Resident.  
Dr. Robert Wismer began his post-graduate medical training in late October. For the next two years, he will live in Chatham-Kent and gain experience with local physicians who provide support and direction to complete the hands-on portion of his medical training. The Chatham-Kent program offers the opportunity to learn and practice medicine in a more rural environment with a variety of learning opportunities in both inpatient and outpatient medicine. 
Dr. Robert Wismer
Dr. Wismer, a native of Chatham-Kent, grew up in Thamesville and attended school in nearby Ridgetown. He received his Bachelor of Medical Science (Honours Physiology) from Western University in 2005 and his Doctor of Medicine from Flinders University of South Australia in 2015. Dr. Wismer enjoys the outdoors and hopes to spend his free time canoeing and camping with his family. 
“Chatham-Kent has always been a big part of who I am. I am thrilled to be able to give something back,” said Dr. Wismer.
Dr. Wismer joins fellow first-year Family Medicine Residents, Drs. Aaron Gross and Adam McDowall, and second-year Family Medicine Residents Drs. Shawn Segeren, Sarah Sikkema, Travis Trudeau and Hina Jhawer.
