Short Bio:

After graduating from University of British Columbia in 1978 with a degree in medicine and interning in Montreal, Dr. Chercover did locums for 3 years in the Fraser Valley and the Northwest coast of BC. During that time, he repeatedly bumped into Dr. David Hardwick, a fellow UBC alumnus and MAA Board Director, who advised him to consider pathology.

After four years as a resident at Vancouver General Hospital (VGH) and UBC Hospital, and a year in the VGH Department of Hematopathology, Dr. Chercover became a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians of Canada in both Anatomical Pathology and Clinical Pathology.

Since then, Dr. Chercover has been a staff member at Lions Gate Hospital, where he happily does mostly surgical pathology.
