Faculty of Medicine


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.

As a medical student, I knew mentorship was important — but that doesn’t mean I made a point of actively seeking it out. If I had, I would surely have avoided a false start to my medical career: embarking on a residency program that wasn’t for me.

While still enrolled in medical school at U of T, Dr. Manveen Puri decided to enrol in the military. He spoke with the Faculty of Medicine’s Karen Lee about his career in medicine and the military.

Upon recognizing a gap in care for those with traumatic injuries, Barbara Baptiste set out to bridge it. The rehabilitation entrepreneur and U of T alumna spoke with the Faculty of Medicine’s Julie Lafford about her career.
