After studying Biochemistry and Physiology at the University of Wales, Cardiff, Dr Carolyn Jones spent a brief time in the British Army where, unfortunately, injury cut short her service.

She studied Medicine in Bristol and on graduation in 2006 went on to undergo numerous hospital and family practice placements throughout the UK and then further post graduate examinations to become a Family physician. In 2013, after 5 years of training, she became a Family physician having gained experience in Remote Medicine; Emergency Medicine; Care of the Elderly; Stroke Medicine; Trauma and Orthopaedics; Ear, Nose and Throat; Paediatrics; Acute Care; Sexual Health Medicine; General and Vascular Surgery.

Carolyn is a Clinical Instructor for the University of British Columbia Medical School and regularly teaches medical students as well as supports the department with an examining role.


Carolyn is also a master injector in 'botox' injections for treating pain and for cosmetic purposes through the Canadian Board of Aesthetic Medicine.

Carolyn and her family decided to move to Canada in 2014. ‘We love the outdoor lifestyle and the opportunities that Canada provides'. Out of work Carolyn enjoys skiing, sailing and spending time with her family.

If you are a physician who puts the patient first, who uses evidence to drive decision making, who doesn't want the hassle of office/physician politics and wants a good work-life balance we want to speak to you!
