Biography

Russell Kennedy, M.D. earned his medical degree from the University of Western Ontario in London, Ontario, Canada in 1991, graduating as president of his medical class. After graduation he moved back to his hometown of Victoria, BC for internship and practiced emergency medicine and obstetrics until settling into full service family practice in 1993. He maintained his practice in Victoria until moving to the mainland of British Columbia in 2004.

Dr. Kennedy has been a corporate speaker since 2001, and since that time has given presentations to medical conventions and events across North America. He speaks to pharmaceutical companies and allied health groups, providing insights into the mind of the practicing physician. He is especially proud of his work with physician support groups, addressing the ever-increasing problem of burnout among doctors. His sense of humor and knowledge of medicine have given him a unique ability to connect with his audience and show them how to take the difficult parts of life a little less seriously. He particularly enjoys speaking to groups that involve the physician and their partner. He also enjoys sharing insights about how doctors interact with patients, allied health workers and pharmaceutical companies.

"Dr. Russ" has been a stand up comedian since 2003 and he has appeared on CBC and CTV Television. You can also hear him across Canada and the United States on Satellite XM radio, Laugh Attack, Channel 153. He performs 3-5 times per week at a number of venues in Vancouver, and has toured Canada with the Yuk Yuks comedy chain. He has been a performer in the CanWest Vancouver Comedy Festival in 2004, 2005, and 2006.

Dr. Kennedy continues to balance stand up comedy, corporate speaking, and the practice of medicine in Vancouver, BC.
