Brandon University graduate Dr. Tyler Tegg will be one of three new full-time family physicians to join the Western Medical Clinic by the end of the year.

He is currently completing his residency with the Rural Family Medicine program at the University of Manitoba, and will be the first graduate of the program to set up shop in Brandon.

Tegg was born in British Columbia and spent summers visiting Westman.

"I have been coming to the area my whole life, it has always felt like home," he said.

He will graduate in August after completing his residency with the Western Medical Clinic, and begin taking patients at the clinic as of Oct 1.

Tegg also studied in Poland and Denmark where he met his wife, Tina. The couple is now settled in Brandon with their three children.

Meanwhile, Dr. Louis Minders and his daughter Dr. Carine Minders will also be joining the Western Medical Clinic. The pair arrived in Manitoba on Dec. 31, returning from practising family medicine at a private clinic in South Africa.

"Over the past months we have identified a number of residents from Westman and surrounding areas who were actively seeking a family physician," said Sandra Levandoski, business manager for the Western Medical Clinic.

"This will definitely help alleviate some of that stress while welcoming new members to the community."

With the pending arrival of the three new doctors, the clinic has opened up a waiting list for new patients. Despite daily inquiries, Western’s eight current family physicians have not been taking on new patients.

Levandoski said the clinic has patients from as far away as Winnipeg and parts of eastern Saskatchewan.
