Mike completed his internal medicine training at the University of Toronto and was Chief Medical Resident at St. Michael's Hospital (2015-2016) in Toronto, Ontario. He attends at St. Michael's as a hospitalist and is currently completing an MSc at the T.H.

He is also completing the Eliot Phillipson Clinician Scientist Training Program at the University of Toronto.
Adam founded The Scope, a weekly newsletter that summarizes top medical research into easy-to-read sentences with humor, in January 2016. The project aims to make medical education more fun and less formal, and to unlock the excitement of current medical research for a broad, non-specialist audience. The authors are a group of 6 internal medicine residents.
Adam is a PGY-3 at Columbia University's Internal Medicine Residency program and will soon begin training as a hematology / oncology fellow at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
