Palliser Medical & Travel Clinic provides its patients with evidence-based and patient-centered care. Dr. Rozemin Devraj-Kizuk has been in family medicine practice for more than 25 years in Lethbridge. She opened her own clinic in 2007 and has expanded her interests and education to include travel health medicine as part of her family practice. She is certified by the International Society of Travel Medicine, and she enjoys meeting people of different backgrounds and nationalities.
Dr. Kizuk has a strong conviction to providing humanitarian medical care in resource-limited countries and did field work in Tanzania in 2015 and 2016 and in Bolivia in 2017. She hopes to continue with these services for as long as it is physically possible for her. In Canada, she enjoys giving her time and medical care to her patients as well as to the new Canadians arriving from conflicted areas of the world.
Her own travel across continents started with her childhood in Tanzania, East Africa followed by her secondary education in London, England and subsequently obtaining her medical degree with specialization in Family Medicine as well as Masters of Science from University of McMaster and University of Toronto in Ontario, Canada. She enjoys learning about different cultures, being a mother to her two children, hockey and cats.
Palliser Medical & Travel Clinic is also fortunate to have the addition of two very qualified and personable physicians. We are expanding and looking to have more physicians join us in the near future.
Dr. Wesley Govender is a South African Family Physician trained at Witwatersrand University in Johannesburg in 2010. He is a member of CPSA and CCFP. He has postgraduate training in urban and rural settings in South Africa. He has special interests in ENT, mental health and refugee heath. He believes in providing patient-centred and holistic medical care. Outside of his medical practice he is a true “Bon vivant” and keen world traveller.
Dr. Jerrett Stephenson was born in Red Deer, Alberta. He studied medicine at the University of Alberta and graduated in 2013. He completed his residency in Rural Family Medicine through the University of Calgary's program administered in Lethbridge, Alberta. After finishing residency in 2015, Dr. Stephenson worked as a travelling locum physician in several rural Alberta locations before opening his practice with the Palliser Medical & Travel Clinic in September of 2016. He is currently taking new patients.
