Meghan Crookshank attended medical school at the University of Toronto (UofT). Prior to this, she enjoyed the world of biological engineering and completed her undergrad in biomedical engineering (University of Guelph), her Master’s of Science in Engineering (Queen’s University), and her PhD at the Institute of Biomaterials and Biomedical Engineering at UofT with much of her research focusing on orthopaedic biomechanics. She completed two years of residency in orthopaedic surgery (UofT) before making the transition to family medicine (UofT) and, finally, her fellowship in sport and exercise medicine at UofT.
She has had the pleasure of providing medical coverage for a variety of teams and events, such as with the Varsity Blues football, volleyball, and hockey teams. She is passionate regarding the importance of physical activity and mobility for overall health for all individuals and enjoys working with a spectrum of patients. She is looking forward to reapplying her research background to areas in the sport and exercise medicine community, such as injury prevention.
In her spare time, she enjoys playing soccer, road cycling, and hiking (to name a few things), hanging out with her dog, and tries to maximize time with her family and friends.
