Danielle Martin: The Good Doctor

Canada may not have the best health care system on the world, but it’s better than most. That’s largely due to people like Dr. Danielle Martin. Read her bio for all her achievements, but just know that we have a fearless advocate for making things better. Just watch her take down a U.S. Senate Committee. We talk about all the problems: wait times, expensive drugs, and how to find a family doctor (hot tip: July is a good time to find a fresh one). Also, just a reminder to never ask a doctor at a party for free health advice.

Danielle Martin is Chair of the Department of Family and Community Medicine at the University of Toronto, the largest academic department of its kind in the world. She has worked and managed clinics in rural and remote communities offering family and maternity care. Dr. Martin has spent years as a senior hospital executive, most recently at Women’s College Hospital. An educator and role model, Dr. Martin schooled a U.S. Senate Committee on health care in a video that went viral, earning 35 million views and counting. The recipient of many awards and accolades, Dr. Martin become the youngest physician to receive the F.N.G. Starr Award, the highest honour in the Canadian Medical Association.
