Dr. Maged Metias
Hometown: Pickering, Ontario
Undergraduate: Mechanical Engineering, University of Toronto
Medical School: University of Toronto
Why did I choose this specialization? I was a piping and pumping engineer initially and vascular surgery was a field of medicine that was the medical parallel to my engineering training and career. Moreover, vascular surgery is unique in that it allows you to preform open and endovascular surgery, exposes you to anatomy all over the body, allows you to independently medically manage your patients, and thus, build long-term relationships with your patients!
Why McMaster? McMaster had great surgical training with high volumes and early surgical exposure. The staff and residents were very encouraging and supportive. The city itself has a lot to offer from its numerous trails, waterfalls and restaurants.
Professional Interests: Combining engineering and innovation with vascular surgery.
Other Interests: I have a variety of interests from outdoor activities such as travelling, hiking, sailing, and basketball to indoor activities such as home renovation, reading, baking/cooking, and simply hanging out with family and friends.
