Faculty of Medicine


UofTMed alum Howard Petroff serves as assistant medical director for the Toronto Raptors basketball team. We asked him about his experiences in family and emergency medicine, his work with the Raptors and the challenges of working with high-performance athletes.

Newly-appointed president and CEO of Women's College Hospital (WCH), Heather McPherson speaks about her plans as CEO, her background in occupational therapy at U of T and the advice she would give to students interested in management roles.

An emergency medicine physician, Assistant Professor in U of T’s Department of Medicine and mentor with the Faculty of Medicine’s Diversity Mentorship Program, on her off hours Dr. Telisha Smith-Gorvie can be found rocking out on bass guitar with a band of colleagues. 

The late Dr. Dina Gordon Malkin, MD ’48, dedicated her time to internal medicine and medical research and was committed to helping young women succeed as health care professionals. Malkin generously gave back to U of T through scholarships, awards and by mentoring MD students. Her son, Dr. David Malkin, spoke with U of T Medicine’s Rohini Chopra about his mom’s commitment to research, philanthropy and on honouring her legacy.
