Dan Fellows - Erin Dyer
Erin Dyer, MD, MSc
In 2012, the generosity of Dr. Michael and Mrs. Amira Dan enabled the establishment of the new Michael and Amira Dan Fellowships in Neurosurgery at the University of Toronto. This program offers two 1-year fellowship opportunities each year. Now in the third year of the program, we are pleased to highlight the Dan Fellows for the 2014-15 academic year, Dr. Erin Dyer (Sunnybrook Hospital ) and Dr. Christian Dorfer (Hospital for Sick Children). Dr. Erin Dyer received her MSc degree from University of Guelph and her MD degree from the DeGroote School of Medicine at McMaster University. She completed her neurosurgical residency at the University of Western Ontario (2004-10), followed by two years of endovascular/cerebrovascular training as the Charles Drake Clinical Fellow at the University of Western Ontario. She then joined the Cleveland Clinic as a Physician Leader in the area of hemorrhagic care and most recently as an Associate Staff cerebrovascular neurosurgeon/ neurointerventionalist. Dr. Dyer chose to come to Toronto for Sunnybrook’s wide variety of cases, as well as the Division’s supportive training staff and teaching opportunities. Her focus is on vascular and endovascular neurosurgery and is eager to pursue additional training in spine surgery.
