Prior to her medical studies, she completed a BSc at Mount Allison University and an MSc in nationalism studies at the University of Edinburgh.

  • Born and raised in Toronto. My loves in life are two: my dog, Baxter, and the Toronto Maple Leafs. My spare time is spent reading, at the dog park, snowboarding as much as is humanly possible, and with my family (two brothers and a sister). I take a yearly trip to Jamaica to teach bedside ultrasound to physicians from around the country, and hope to bring somebody along next year! Dr. ElHalabi's mentors are Drew Thompson, Ram Reddy and Heather Hames.
