More about Patrick Taylor
Dr. Patrick Taylor, M.D., was brought up in Bangor, Northern Ireland, and received his medical education in Ulster. He initially practised in a rural Ulster village akin to Ballybucklebo before taking specialist training in Obstetrics and Gynaecology. After living in Belfast through the first two years of the recent Irish Troubles (1969-1994) he and his family emigrated to Canada where he pursued a career in medical research and teaching in the field of human infertility. His contributions have been honoured with three lifetime achievement awards including the Lifetime Award of Excellence of the Canadian Fertility and Andrology Society.

He is well known for his humorous, historical fiction series, The Irish Country Doctor. However, beyond the beloved village and characters of Ballybucklebo, North Ireland, he published over 170 scientific papers and six textbooks. And for ten years, (1991-2001) he was editor-in-chief of the Canadian Obstetrics and Gynaecology journal. In this interview, he shares how his life in North Ireland, medical career, an early medical humor column informed his popular books. Patrick has also authored two more novels and short story anthologies.
