A new physician has arrived in Estevan, as Dr. Rania Eldin will commence her practice in Estevan this week.
Eldin will establish her practice in the Primacy Medical Clinic attached to the No Frills Grocery Store, where she will share her practice with Dr.’s Edward Tsoi, Allison Christie, Ahmed Belal, Hanan Abou El Yazid and Germin Attia.
Eldin received her medical training in Egypt and brings approximately 15 years of medical practice experience. She is a graduate of the Saskatchewan International Physicians
Practice Assessment program (SIPPA), which is the competency assessment program used by the province of Saskatchewan to ensure the qualifications of international physicians prior to licensing in Saskatchewan.
She has also received her License from the College of Physicians and
Surgeons of Saskatchewan and has received privileges from the Saskatchewan Health Authority.
“The arrival of Dr. Eldin will bring the number of full-time physicians practising in Estevan to 13, in addition to several providing locum services at St. Joseph’s Hospital,” said St. Joseph’s Hospital executive director Greg Hoffort. “Dr. Eldin is a welcome addition to the medial staff and the healthcare team at St. Joseph’s Hospital of Estevan and we are pleased that she has made the decision to move to Estevan to practice medicine in our community.”
Hoffort credits a collaborative effort between the St. Joseph’s Hospital Foundation and St.
Joseph’s Hospital for their success in regards to recruitment and retention of physicians.
