Dr. Bouchard obtained her medical degree at McGill University. She completed her orthopaedic surgery residency at the University of Toronto in 2012 and received the Dr. Borna Meisami Award as the most compassionate resident. She also obtained a Masters' of Science during her training. She investigated the access to orthopaedic care and medical devices in low-income countries and was the recipient of the Norman Bethune International Surgery Fellowship that funded this research based in Uganda. She was awarded first prize in the Department of Clinical and Social Administrative Pharmacy in the Leslie Dan Faculty of Pharmacy at the University of Toronto in 2012 and a Lawson Research Prize in 2013 for this work.

During residency, Dr. Bouchard developed subspecialty interests in children’s orthopedics, and particularly in lower limb and foot and ankle deformity. She completed clinical and research fellowships in adult foot and ankle surgery under Dr. Tim Daniels at the University of Toronto, and trained with Dr. Thibault Leemrijse in Brussels, Belgium. Subsequently, she pursued a pediatric orthopedic fellowship at Seattle Children's Hospital with Dr. Vincent Mosca, and an adult and pediatric lower limb reconstruction fellowship at the Royal Children's Hospital in Melbourne, Australia with Mr. Leo Donnan. For her foot and ankle research, she was awarded the Best Clinical Paper Prize at the Fellows’ Research Day for the University of Toronto in 2013, and an Academic Enrichment Fund grant from Seattle Children’s Hospital in 2016 for a study on idiopathic toe walking.

Dr. Bouchard began her career as a staff surgeon at Seattle Children’s Hospital and the University of Washington from March 2015 to December 2018. She cared for children with foot and ankle disorders including clubfeet, established a limb reconstruction and lengthening program, and participated in the multidisciplinary teams for children with skeletal dysplasias and arthrogryposis. Although it was bittersweet to leave, she is excited to return home to Canada and care for children in Ontario.
