Dr. Stewart has been a family physician in Summerside, PEI, since 2002, where she is well known as a caring physician, mentor and supportive colleague.
Since her early medical education, Dr. Trina Stewart has always sought opportunities to advocate for her peers, the profession and the patients she serves. In that pursuit, she has held many leadership roles, including acting as Medical Director for Prince County Hospital, the Chief of Family Practice for Prince County Hospital, Dalhousie University’s Curriculum Coordinator for PEI’s Family Medicine Residency program and the physician for the Cough and Fever/Covid Clinic in Western PEI. Dr. Stewart also provides dermatology services, owns and operates Esprit Medical Aesthetics and teaches medical learners of all levels.
A Memorial University of Newfoundland graduate, Dr. Stewart received a Certification in Family Medicine from the College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC) in 2000 and her fellowship in 2011. In 2010, she received a Diploma in Practical Dermatology from Cardiff University in Wales.

Dr. Stewart sees her role as MSPEI President as an opportunity to seek ways in which she can further support and advocate for her colleagues and patients. She is especially keen to pay attention to their overall well-being, a role she sees needing more attention than ever as the world continues to respond to a global pandemic.
Dr. Stewart lives in Summerside with her husband, Dean. They have two children, Dexter, an engineering student at Queen’s University and Lindsay, a Grade 11 student at Three Oaks Senior High, and their fur babies: Bert and Ernie and puppy Daisy.
