Welcome to Dr. Tommy Gerschman

We are pleased to welcome Dr. Tommy Gerschman to the Department of Pediatrics as Clinical Instructor with the Division of General Pediatrics.

Dr. Gerschman graduated from the UBC Faculty of Medicine  in 2006 and completed his residency in Pediatrics and sub-specialty training in Rheumatology at BC Children’s Hospital in 2011. After spending two years as a Pediatric Rheumatology Locum in Alberta and Manitoba, he has returned to British Columbia to work in various communities in Metro Vancouver as a Pediatrician and MSK specialist.

Dr. Gerschman enjoys working with medical students and residents, teaching in both formal clinical skill small groups and in clinical settings.

Currently, he is completing a MSc Sports Medicine, Exercise, and Health (distance-learning) through the University College of London (UK) and hopes to focus his research on applying exercise medicine to children with chronic disease.

In his spare time, Dr. Gerschman enjoys traveling abroad, learning how to cook new recipes, and skiing on sunny Whistler slopes.
