August 2019
Dr. Michael Walsh
General Internal Medicine
University of Calgary

I was born in Kingston, Ontario and completed my undergraduate degree at McGill University and medical school at the University of Toronto. When it came time for residency, I had a taste of the mountains and was eager for more, so I moved west to Calgary to complete my Internal Medicine training. I served as Chief Resident in my final year and was routinely humbled by the dedication of my mentors and co-resident physicians to making me a better physician. When it came time for the Medicine Sub-specialty Match, I decided to stick around and am currently completing a fellowship in General Internal Medicine, with interests in medical education and point of care ultrasound. Outside of work, I am probably in the mountains doing whatever activity is in season, hanging out with friends or watching the North Carolina Tarheels.

 Colleagues had this to say about Dr. Michael Walsh:

“I had the pleasure of working with Mike when he was ward senior during my second ever block of MTU. It was a stressful month to say the least and Mike made it so much fun. He loves to teach, has so much knowledge, is a natural at being a senior and is so passionate about medicine and his patients. I got to learn so much from him! Not only does he have these academic qualities, he is also funny, kind and genuinely cares for your well-being. He is loved by all of his colleagues and deserves recognition for being who he is!”

Congratulations Dr. Michael Walsh!
