include trauma and critical care, and he is starting to take an
interest in ultrasound. In his free time Travis finds time to
rollerblade, travel, drink, and solve world hunger. Travis likes U of

very closely knit and work well together. He would also like to
add, “The winters here only make you stronger.”


In the ‘Where are they now’ section, you indicate 20043 Dr. Trevor Cadieu is working on his emergency medicine residency. While I wish I had the intelligence of my brother, I unfortunately cannot make that claim.

His twin brother, 20512 Travis (R, graduated from RMC in 1996 and is currently an attending physician at the Vancouver General Hospital. All the best to the great RMC team.
