Allan
Professor & Chair, Gynecologic Oncology, University of Toronto

IGCS Member since 1990

I decided to pursue a career in gynecologic oncology because it is a fascinating specialty with so much study and research. Every patient is unique and there are many unmet needs and challenges in the specialty.

My day to day activities include mentorship of junior faculty and fellows and I take pleasure from their successes. I continually push the boundaries of our specialty, questioning what we do and why. A driving force in my practice is to constantly examine if there is something better that we could or should be doing to for our patients by exploring new options in surgery and the management of malignancies.
