It is with pleasure that we welcome Kelsey Klages to the role of Postgraduate Manager in the Department of Family Medicine. Kelsey will work closely with Dr. Jamie Wickett, Postgraduate Director, and the Postgraduate staff team of Dianne Brooks, Lin Hill, Sharon Story and Liz McInnis for PRP and IMGs.
