On global health with Naheed Dosani, PGY3, Family Medicine, University of Toronto

Reaching out to the most vulnerable

From Cambodia, to Kenya, to the toughest streets of Toronto, Dr. Naheed Dosani aims to assist those who fall between the cracks.

Naheed, a 2008 graduate of the University of Ontario Institute of Technology’s (UOIT) Biological and Biomedical Sciences program, is passionate about global health equity and inner-city health.

During his time at UOIT, he was involved in numerous humanitarian initiatives, raising awareness and funds for programs in Canada and around the world. An exceptional student, he received several scholarships. Then he paid it forward by donating a scholarship back to the university to share with others. The Dr. Naheed Dosani Entrance Scholarship is awarded annually to a UOIT student who demonstrates the impact of involvement and personal growth through humanitarian action.

Naheed continues reaching out to people as a researcher, teacher, doctor and advocate. He is a Palliative Care and Family Physician with William Osler Health System, St. Michael’s Hospital and the Inner-City Health Associates (ICHA), a group of more than 60 physicians who work in shelters and drop-in sites to provide care to homeless and marginally housed individuals in the Greater Toronto Area.
