I’m Bryce Durafourt, a PGY-3 in Neurology at Queen’s University. I was born in Montreal, Quebec and attended McGill, where I received an honours B.Sc. in Microbiology and Immunology (2009); M.Sc. in Neuroscience (2011); and, M.D., C.M. (2015).
Why I chose Neurology
During my undergraduate training, I completed an honours thesis project in neuroimmunology under the supervision of neurologist Dr. Jack Antel at the Montreal Neurological Institute. I became fascinated by the implications of basic science research on clinical practice, as our lab worked on the pre-clinical development of a novel oral multiple sclerosis treatment. I continued on to complete my Master’s degree in the same lab, and, under Dr. Antel’s mentorship, I discovered my passion for neurology
