Dr. David Moores was born and raised in St. John’s, Newfoundland. He was a graduate of the first class
of Medicine in 1973 at Memorial University and did a three-year residency training program in Family
Medicine at Queens University in Kingston. Before moving to Baffin Island, he completed a GP Anaesthesia Training Program at the Camsell Hospital in Edmonton.
In 1990 he moved from his clinical and faculty position at Memorial University of Newfoundland to become the Professor and Chair of Family Medicine at the University of Alberta. He practised at thebRoyal Alexandra Family Medicine Centre for 28 years until the new MacEwan University Health Centre (MUHC) opened in July of 2018.
Dr. Moores enjoys providing comprehensive medical services to a student population as well as his many “older” patients who moved with him to MacEwan. His interests are supplemented with end of life care (palliative care), quality and safety of health services and engaging the public in improving health care services.
Dr. Moores finds his early morning walk from the University of Alberta to the MacEwan University Health Centre to be a time when he can think.
