I was born in Kiev, Ukraine. I moved to Canada in 1997 and completed my B.Sc. (Hons.), Ph.D. (Cellular and Molecular Medicine), and MD at the University of Ottawa. I joined the McMaster Urology Residency program in July 2011. I chose McMaster Urology because of the program’s strengths (i.e., early and diverse surgical exposure, large volume of cases, best MIS experience, and a great group of mentors and colleagues).
My pastimes include: outdoor activities in general, soccer, enjoying time with family and friends, photography, and kayaking.
