Dr. Wylie was born and raised near the North West Territories but later moved to Alberta working in agriculture before joining the Canadian Armed Forces. Serving as a Tank Commander for several years he eventually pursued studies in medicine and has practiced in several communities in Alberta and has now lived and worked in Sundre since 2012.  In addition to his role as family and emergency physician he also teaches trauma at Foothills hospital and is an instructor for both the University of Calgary and Alberta.  His research interests include longevity, healthspan, and permaculture.


Dr. Jonathan somerville

Dr. Somerville grew up on a farm near Edmonton, Alberta. He completed Medical School at the University of Calgary, and then did a residency in Rural Family Medicine at the University of Alberta's Red Deer site, graduating in 2014.  Dr. Somerville has been practicing in Sundre since 2014 and enjoys the challenges and rewards that rural general practice offers. He frequently has medical students and residents working with him, and is actively involved in rural faculty development with the Cumming School of Medicine.  When not in the office or ER, he enjoys hiking, running, traveling, and a good meal. And of course, he can never get enough time in with his awesome family. 


Dr. chris chapman

Born and raised in Victoria, BC, Dr. Chris Chapman moved to Alberta in 2011 for medical school at the University of Alberta, where he stayed for his family medicine residency.

My name is Sara Klapstein and I am a second year FM resident from the UofA urban program. I grew up in Beaumont, AB and have a grain family farm just south of Edmonton where my Dad, Uncle, and Grandpa work. I currently live in Edmonton with my Husband Nathan and our dog Orson. I love all things outdoors, including but not limited to: camping, hiking, and cross country skiing. I am hoping to live on an acreage and work at a rural site when I am finished residency. I can't wait to get out of the city and see all that Sundre has to offer!
