Justin Lam is an Academic General Paediatrics fellow at SickKids Hospital pursuing a PhD in Health Professions Education Research through the Wilson Centre and IHPME. Through his PhD, he is interested in using critical theory to study how professional identity formation is impacted by structural equity, diversity, and inclusion issues through socialization and hidden curriculum effects, with the aim of making the learning environment more equitable and safe for learners to ultimately contribute to better patient care. He completed an undergraduate degree in Art History at Stanford University and went on to complete his medical degree and paediatrics residency at the University of Toronto, where he served as one of the Chief Residents. His clinical interest is in caring for hospitalized children with complex care needs and children from marginalized populations.
