Dr. Colby Finney
What attracted you to medicine?
Looking back I realize that what you perceive medicine will be like before you start and what it truly involves are quite different. However, I think what attracted me was the opportunity to make a meaningful impact on someone’s life, the camaraderie amongst healthcare professionals, hands on procedural work and lifelong learning.
In 10 years, what UBC moment will you still be talking about?
Match day. The energy and excitement amongst classmates that morning was something special. So proud of what the class of 2018 accomplished and happy I was able to spend four years at SMP.
What’s next for you?
Headed to Vancouver to complete my residency in Orthopedic Surgery.
As you look ahead, what (or who) inspires you?
My father for sure. The most patient, humble and selfless guy I know, plus he can fix anything, wouldn’t be where I am today without him.
Name one thing on your bucket list.
Hike through Quttinirpaaq National Park
