After participating at the St. Clair-Dufferin Medical Centre, Cecil opened his own family practice while on staff at both the Toronto General and North York General hospitals, [where he taught] hundreds of young doctors throughout his career. On any given weekend, Dr. Craig could be found triaging as on-call physician for the many difficult cases that came into the Emergency Department of the North York General Hospital. He held many different teaching positions before retiring from solo practice in Markham, Ont., in 2016.”
