Drs. Colin and Sara Taylor have been a united team in life for the past 22 years and in marriage for the past 20 years. In March of 2013, Sara launched her website SaraT,M.D., dedicated to general wellness, physician wellness and personal development. In October 2016, they are launched their joint website Physicians for Physicians, dedicated to physician wellness and personal development through online courses–and starting physician wellness retreats in the fall of 2017.
To provide some context, Colin and Sara both grew up in the Maritimes (Eastern Canada), Colin in Prince Edward Island and Sara in New Brunswick. They met during medical school at the University of Western Ontario of Canada in 1994. Two years later, they married in medical school and upon graduation, moved to Calgary, Alberta (Canada) to pursue residency training.
Sara completed her Family Medicine residency in 2000. She has worked in various clinical and nonclinical settings in Calgary, Prince Edward Island, and now Red Deer, Alberta. She also used to work with the provincial physician health program and had a part-time clinical practice limited to Sexual Health in a Community Health Center. The majority of her work today is related to SaraT, M.D.
Colin completed his Radiology residency in 2003. He then worked as a Staff Radiologist in Prince Edward Island and then in Red Deer, Alberta. Apart from his work as a radiologist, he also takes great pleasure in the creative aspect of his behind the scenes work on both Sara T, M.D. and now Physicians for Physicians.
Physicians for Physicians is a physician wellness and personal development initiative co-founded and operated by Drs. Colin and Sara Taylor. Having been married for 20 years and with over 29 years of combined medical expertise, Colin and Sara offer personalized online courses and retreats to ultimately enhance physicians’ personal and professional lives.
Colin and Sara’s greatest joys are their two teenaged children, who have added a dimension of perspective and purpose to their lives since medical training. They have focused on living each and every day with them, as opposed to just raising them. They also enjoy their downtime at home, cooking, walking, and spending time with their four pets.
Colin and Sara have recently relocated to Victoria, British Columbia (Canada). Colin & Sara Taylors’ passionate commitment to physician wellness and personal development earned them our recognition as Medical Influencers of the Week.
