Meet Dr. Michael Slater

Michael Slater

Family physician




I am grateful to have spent most of my life as a visitor on the traditional territories of the WSÁNEĆ peoples. My preferred pronouns are he/him and I work as family physician at the Student Wellness Centre.

I graduated high school nearby in Saanich and completed an undergraduate degree in Kinesiology here at the University of Victoria. Since then, I’ve completed medical school through the University of British Columbia Southern Medical Program in Kelowna. I subsequently moved to Edmonton for family medicine residency through the University of Alberta and I’m now fortunate to be back in Victoria close to family.

In my personal life, I’ve always been involved in athletics and I enjoy both watching and participating in a range of sports whenever I can.

I enjoy the diversity working as a family doctor offers and I love having the opportunity to educate patients regarding their health both for the present and the future.
