After graduating from McGill University’s medical school, Dr. Mino Mitri trained in the specialty of Internal Medicine at Queen’s University. Fueled by a passion for education and palliative care, he pursued a Master of Education while at Queen’s University. His thesis, Perceptions of Physicians on the Adoption of a Palliative Care Approach in Patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, birthed his advocacy for an earlier integration of a palliative care approach in the care of patients with any life-limiting illness. In 2019, he was the first to graduate at the University of British Columbia from the inaugural Royal College Subspecialty of Palliative Medicine. His clinical and academic interests include palliative care in non-malignant diseases, sexual medicine, palliative medicine education and improving the art of medical presentations.
