Alberta welcomes International Medical Graduates (IMGs).
Lesotho, Africa is a long way from Alberta, but Dr. Johnson Fatokun and his Smoky Lake patients are glad he made that journey.
It didn't happen overnight. Almost two years passed from the time Dr. Fatokun made the decision to come here and arriving with his wife and daughter. He says being organized was the key to successfully completing the rigorous registration process.
Now with a busy family practice in Smoky Lake, Dr. Fatokun enjoys working in a small community, and encourages other physicians to consider rural practice too.
