Brief Biography

Dr. Campbell received his Doctor of Medicine from the University of Toronto. He holds a Master’s of Science in Biochemistry from the University of Ottawa and has successfully completed the Royal College of Physicians of Canada (FRCPC) examinations in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. In 2012, he completed a basic science & translational research fellowship at the University of Leeds in the UK.

He is currently an associate professor of Medicine at the University of Ottawa and a clinician investigator at the Ottawa Hospital. In addition to being an active medical staff member at the Ottawa Hospital and the Stroke rehabilitation program at Elisabeth Bruyère Hospital.
