Please join me in welcoming Ujash Sheth to our faculty in the Division of Orthopaedics.
Ujash received his Bachelor of Health Sciences from McMaster University in 2008 and his MD from Queen’s University in 2012. In 2018, he attained his FRCSC in Orthopaedic Surgery following the completion of his residency at the University of Toronto. During his training he completed a MSc in Clinical Epidemiology from the Institute of Health Policy, Management and Evaluation (IHPME) through the Surgeon-Scientist Training Program. His thesis work on knowledge translation and the impact of randomized trials on surgeon practice patterns received national and international recognition, including the prestigious Herodicus Award, for best resident paper at the 2016 AOSSM annual meeting.
In 2019, Ujash completed a fellowship in Sports Medicine and Arthroscopy at Northwestern University, in Chicago, IL, where he served as an Assistant Team Physician for the Chicago Blackhawks, Chicago Cubs and Northwestern Wildcats football team. Ujash and his wife, Chantel, also became parents to their 15-month old son, Liam, while in Chicago.With a new baby in tow, he returned home to Toronto to complete a second fellowship in Upper Extremity and Trauma at Sunnybrook this past year.
Having grown up in the west end of Toronto, Ujash is happy to be home and excited to join the University of Toronto’s Division of Orthopaedic Surgery as an Assistant Professor and Surgeon Investigator. His surgical practice will focus on upper extremity reconstruction and trauma with a special interest in arthroscopic treatment of shoulder and elbow pathology. His research interests include clinical outcomes after open and arthroscopic shoulder and elbow surgery.
We delighted to have Ujash join our faculty and wish him the best of luck in his academic pursuits. Welcome Ujash!
All the best,
