I’m Dr. Islam Elawadly and I am a family physician practices hospital care, family and emergency medicine in rural Alberta. My aim is to transfer my passion for rural medicine to current residents and Medical students in their first years of learning. I completed my family medicine training at Nasser Educational Hospital and Institute in Cairo, Egypt, in 2008. I received my Membership of the Royal College of Physicians in the UK in 2012. Continuity of care and advocating for patients is what family practice means to me. I posses great emergency skills and provide excellent hospital care. My experience in working with Primary Care Networks and teaching medical students are added bonuses. Previously, I worked as a family and emergency room physician in Dubai for 8 years.


I had passion for teaching since starting my career in Medicine, teaching Medical students history taking and physical examination during my first couple of years in practice. Most of my students have proven to be good doctors and has excelled in the field from research to subspecialties. I alway emphasis the importance of communication and establishing a unique relationship with their patients.
