Over ten years in Vancouver’s Downtown South and Eastside, Dr. Corneil has come to appreciate the importance of access to prevention and primary care services in the health and wellbeing of vulnerable and high risk populations. Completing a second residency in Community Medicine brought several new lenses to his personal experience. The role of access can be approached from several directions, in particular – clinical care, research, public health care, policy, and education. As such, Dr. Corneil divides his time between health authority administration, tertiary prevention and public primary care, educating new physicians, and relevant quality assurance and/or research.
