    Pugwash is representative of all that is good along the northern shores of Nova Scotia : the friendly people, a safe deep harbour, sandy beaches, and the "warmest waters north of the Carolinas" in the summer.

    Pugwash and area is not just a summer retreat for many cottagers and visitors, it has attractions all year round with excellent hiking, snowmobile and ATV trails, serene wild life habitat reserves nearby, hunting in the fall, and birdwatching in the spring.

    Long, deep, cool rivers are perfect habitats for salmon. The surrounding areas remain wooded, making excellent habitat for the many birds of prey such as bald eagles and osprey.

    Ski Wentworth is only a 20 minute drive away!

    Physicians in Nova Scotia provide fulfilling patient care which embraces family life, professional development and community involvement.

    That's what makes practicing medicine in Nova Scotia unique. Physicians are increasingly attracted to practices that offer team-based care to their patients and allow them to consult with their peers.

    The size and scale of Nova Scotia allows for better connections across the health care system. Your practice of medicine and your life is richer here.

    Nova Scotia is more than medicine.
