Welcome Dr. Jarred Garfinkle to the Department!


Published: 30Oct2020

The Department of Pediatrics would like to introduce our newest member, Dr. Jarred Garfinkle, appointed Assistant Professor in the Division of Neonatology.

Dr. Garfinkle is a neonatologist with subspecialty training in neonatal neurology. After completing medical school and Paediatric residency at McGill University, Dr. Garfinkle embarked on Neonatal-Perinatal training at the University of Toronto. Thereafter, Dr. Garfinkle undertook a CIHR Fellowship and MSc in Dr. Steven Miller’s lab at The Hospital for Sick Children. Dr. Garfinkle's research focus is on preterm brain health, and specifically how the antecedents of preterm delivery and the adversities in the neonatal intensive care unit impact brain development in this vulnerable but resilient group of children.

Dr. Garfinkle is a proud new father and so glad to be starting a family in Montreal. He enjoy cooking and eating well. On my weekends off, Dr. Garfinkle tries to be outdoors walking, kayaking, or biking. "I couldn’t be luckier to be returning to the MCH and living in Montreal."
