New Endo residents and Peds Endo fellowsDr. Miranda Boggild
Miranda is very excited to be starting the adult endocrinology and metabolism program! Miranda, originally from Ottawa, studied microbiology and immunology at McGill University for undergraduate training and moved to Toronto eight years ago to start medical school. She graduated from the University of Toronto MD program in 2013 and started residency in internal medicine. For the 2016-2017 academic year, Miranda was the chief medical resident at Toronto General Hospital, working closely with the internal medicine program and hospital in the training program development and delivery, and acting as an educational event organizer, teacher, and resident advocate. On a more personal note, Miranda played rugby and basketball in high school and university and continues to play co-ed basketball. Miranda has known that she wanted to pursue a career in endocrinology ever since medical school and couldn’t be more excited to learn and explore interests in the field. 

Dr. Diana Jaskolka 
Diana recently completed her internal medicine residency at the University of Toronto. She obtained a Bachelor of Medical Science from Western University with a focus on physiology. She then moved to Canada's capital city for medical school at the University of Ottawa. She has enjoyed being back home in Toronto for her internal medicine training and is excited to be a part of Toronto's adult endocrinology program. Diana is interested in teaching and looks forward to motivating her patients to self-manage their conditions to achieve positive long-term impact. In her spare time, she enjoys playing defence on her co-ed floor hockey team.

Dr. Shirine Usmani 
Shirine is originally from Burlington, Ontario. She completed her undergraduate degree in physiology and pharmacology at the University of Western Ontario before being accepted into the MD/PhD program, also at Western. Her graduate work focused on musculoskeletal biology, specifically studying signaling pathways involved in skeletal development and osteoarthritis. After graduating from medical school, Shirine moved to Toronto for her internal medicine residency. She is thrilled to be starting a residency in endocrinology, and is looking forward to expanding her clinical knowledge and research interests.
