Patients all across Saskatchewan continue to have better access to physician care. A new family doctor is now practising in Eston, thanks to the Saskatchewan International Physician Practice Assessment (SIPPA) program.
Dr. Tokunbo Dabiri joins many other International Medical Graduate (IMG) colleagues already practising in Saskatchewan. SIPPA is a unique Saskatchewan program that assesses IMGs on their education and clinical ability before allowing them to practise medicine. Since the program began in 2011, close to 180 new family physicians have completed the assessment and are currently practising in the province.
