Neelam Sandhu MD, MSc, FRCPC

I am a BC native who spent early childhood on Salt Spring island before moving to Victoria BC. I completed my BSc and MSc at the University of Victoria in Health Information Science and Health Informatics. I then attended medical school at UBC and went off to Edmonton, Alberta for my anatomical pathology residency program at the University of Alberta. I then went to Buffalo, NY to complete two fellowships in oncological surgical pathology and head and neck pathology at Roswell Park Cancer Institute and Erie County Medical Center. After spending some time working in Atlantic Canada as an anatomical pathologist, I have returned to the West Coast in 2018 to become a member of the pathology staff at St. Paul’s Hospital. I am passionate about travel and seeing the many wonders of the world! My life bucket list goal is to visit 100 countries and by next year I will be at nearly 90% of that goal!
