Anthon Meyer, M.B. Ch.B, CCFP
Fort St. James, British Columbia (B.C.)

Dr Anthon Meyer is described as a primary care visionary with commendable leadership in providing comprehensive care to rural, remote, and First Nations communities throughout Canada.

After receiving his Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery (M.B. Ch.B.) from the University of Free State, South Africa, in 1991, Dr Meyer completed an internship with the Universitas Hospital Training Complex in South Africa in 1993. In 2000, he moved to northern Manitoba, and he received Certification in Family Medicine from the College of Family Physicians of Canada in 2004.

After establishing a general practice with ER skills and serving as a “fly-in” family physician in northern Manitoba, Dr Meyer relocated to Fort St. James, B.C., where he serves as Medical Director of the Fort St. James Medical Clinic. He also practices comprehensive family medicine and emergency care through his roles as a family physician with Stuart Lake General Hospital.

Dr Meyer is the founder of Amdocs, a unique primary care model that has led to the recruitment of health care providers and the establishment of full-service, rural general practices with ER skills in the Inuit and First Nations communities in northern Manitoba and Ontario.

Currently, Dr Meyer serves as Assistant Professor with the University of British Columbia, the University of Northern British Columbia, and the Northern Ontario School of Medicine, as well as a lecturer with the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Manitoba. He is also a peer assessor with the College of Physicians and Surgeons of British Columbia.

In addition to his clinical work and various academic leadership roles, Dr Meyer serves as chair of the board of AMCARE (Aggregated Metrics for Clinical Analysis and Research Evaluation) in Northern Health.

When he is not volunteering his time to assist in population health projects, Dr Meyer (a soon-to-be granddad) enjoys traveling and spending time with his wife, Lydia; their daughter, Marile, and her husband, Pieter; and their son, Anthon Jr.

En 2000, il s’est installé dans le nord du Manitoba. Il a reçu la Certification en médecine familiale du Collège des médecins de famille du Canada en 2004.

Il a d’abord établi une pratique générale offrant des services de médecine d’urgence dans le nord du Manitoba, où il se déplaçait par avion, puis a accepté le poste de directeur médical de la clinique médicale de Fort St. James (Colombie-Britannique). Il exerce également la médecine familiale et offre des soins complets et globaux ainsi que des soins d'urgence à l’hôpital Stuart Lake General Hospital.

Dr Meyer a fondé Amdocs, modèle de soins primaires unique en son genre, qui a permis de recruter des professionnels de la santé et d’établir des pratiques générales offrant des services complets et des soins d’urgence aux communautés inuites et des Premières nations du nord du Manitoba et de l'Ontario.

Il est professeur adjoint à l'Université de la Colombie-Britannique, à l'Université du Nord de la Colombie-Britannique et à l'École de médecine du Nord de l'Ontario, chargé de cours à la Faculté de médecine de l'Université du Manitoba et évaluateur de pairs pour le Collège des médecins et chirurgiens de la Colombie-Britannique.

Outre son travail clinique et ses divers rôles de leadership universitaire, Dr Meyer est président du conseil d’Amcare (Aggregated Metrics for Clinical Analysis and Research Evaluation) pour la santé dans le Nord.

Lorsqu’il ne fait pas du bénévolat pour ses divers projets, Dr Meyer (qui sera bientôt grand-papa) aime voyager et passer du temps avec son épouse, Lydia, leur fille Marile, son conjoint Pieter, et leur fils Anthon Jr.
