Dr. Prem Nichani

PGY-4 | Toronto | Ophthalmology

  • Bio
    Hello Ophtho & ENT/OHNS colleagues :)

    I am Prem Nichani, a PGY4 in UofT Ophthalmology, running for General Council to advocate for YOU! We have been through a lot to get to where we are today. While it is a privilege to care for patients, self-care is equally important so we can be the best surgeons possible.

    PARO Experience: The trust you bestowed upon me has offered me THREE years on PARO General Council which has equipped me to navigate complex systems to enhance our residency experience.

    Other Leadership Experience: (1) High school student government x4y. (2) Undergrad Faculty of Science Students’ Association Executive x3y + elected President, represented 3K students, developed a recurring/still active $45K in research grants for students. (3) Medical school elected 2T1 co-president x4y, secured $40K in sponsorship support, collaborated globally to reorganize the clerkship & electives curricula during COVID. (4) MSc in System, Leadership & Innovation.

    What I Can Offer: A listening ear. Advocacy. Accountability. Integrity. I will work toward an environment that is conducive to learning, collaboration, and enjoyment during residency which may often feel like a long drawn-out process toward becoming a Royal College-certified surgeon. I promise to be a strong voice for ENT/OHNS and Ophthalmology, two small programs that, if not adequately advocated for, will not receive the same attention as other larger specialities. My commitment means ensuring we are treated fairly with dignity and respect during residency, whether it be related to compensation and related government negotiations to combat the atrociousness of Bill 124, call maximums, time-off, workplace safety, and mental health awareness. I vow to work hard for you and be available for you should you have questions about residency, PARO, or anything else.

    It would be an honour to continue working with and representing you. Vote me, Prem Nichani, and I promise not to let you down.

    Best of luck in the 2024/25 year!
