How has your U of T Psychology degree helped you throughout your career?
My degree provided the foundations for understanding people, behaviour and human interaction. My role is to educate clinicians on how to best use the anti-cancer treatments for their relative indications, and to help clinicians get access to treatments for their patients. There a lot of moving parts in the cancer system, and my understanding of how to facilitate collaboration, and focus on common goals, is due in a large part to both my undergraduate and graduate coursework.
