A memory that is engraved in my mind and in my senses is the anatomy lab, which was then in the McMurrich building. Still to this day, when I go into the building I think I can smell the formaldehyde. 

Whether you are a student at the undergraduate or postgraduate level, my main advice would be to take advantage of all of the opportunities that are available here, whether it’s identifying mentors, teachers, or research opportunities. It’s thanks to my mentors and research experiences that I pursued a career in academic medicine.

Addiction, incarceration and homelessness have all been central to Dr. Lipi Roy’s career as an addiction medicine physician. Roy spoke with MedAlumni’s Julie Lafford about her experience caring for vulnerable populations.

My desire to be a doctor goes way back. I always wanted to be in medicine and there is one moment that I remember so clearly. I was on the street car and we drove passed the Western Hospital in Toronto. At that point I had decided to become a nurse because I wanted to have a family, and I figured I couldn’t have a family as a doctor. As we passed the hospital, I remember saying, "No, I don’t want to be a nurse I want to be a doctor."
