We are a teaching clinic

Blue Water medical is proud to be a teaching clinic for two major Universities in British Columbia. We have medical residents from the University of British Columbia and Nurse Practitioner students from both the Universities of British Columbia and Victoria.

Dr. Galanopoulos chose to make BWM a teaching clinic as he realized early on that he would like to be part of the tradition of mentorship that focuses energy on the next generation of healers. Please note that when you are seeing a student in healthcare, you are helping not only yourself but the hundreds if not thousands of future patients that the student provider will ultimately care for.

All cases with our students and residents are meticulously reviewed with the supervising physician and any comments on your interactions with them are genuinely welcomed.
