Dr. Mardinger has always had an interest in health promotion and disease prevention. In 2014, she completed a Bachelor of Health Sciences at the University of Calgary, an inquiry-based, multidisciplinary, and research-intensive honours degree program, which explores social, political, and economic factors that shape the health of individuals and populations.
After completing her medical degree at the university of Calgary, Dr. Mardinger moved to Montreal where she completed her residency training in Family Medicine at the Jewish General Hospital amidst the COVID-19 pandemic (2022). Driven by her strong interest in medical research, she also completed a M.Sc. in Medical Sciences remotely at the University of Calgary in parallel to her residency. Her thesis focused on surgical quality improvement and demonstrated the use of a novel software application to automate the laborious work of scoping reviews.
Of note, Dr. Mardinger has a particular interest in minor surgeries and brings with her over a year of surgical experience from before her residency training in Family Medicine. By offering a broad range of minor procedures in her practice, Dr. Mardinger hopes to help patients avoid long wait times for specialist referral. There are many benefits of procedures performed by general practitioners, including cost effectiveness, decreased waitlist volumes, and improved patient satisfaction. This also allows our specialist colleagues to manage a higher volume of urgent referrals.
