Dr. Rajiv Thavanathan

Dr. Rajiv Thavanathan

Co-Host

Rajiv is a FRCPC Emergency Medicine physician at the University of Ottawa. His academic focus includes point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) with an interest in resuscitative echocardiography, medical education, with some digressions into cognitive bias and metacognition. He first started podcasting about music in 2007 (!) and entered the world of #FOAMed podcasting in 2016. He has since instructed at the Podcasting Course in Lexington, KY and Podcast Camp in Toronto, ON. He loves Joan Didion as much as Kim Gordon and wishes that obscure sketch-comedy was acceptable fodder for small talk. 

Dr. Tiffany Lam

Dr. Tiffany Lam

Co-Host

Tiff is an emergency medicine physician in Ottawa and a previous graduate of EMOttawa. Her academic focus includes medical education, global health, and social determinants of health. She currently works in community and urban Emergency Departments and hopes to diversify this to rural and remote EDs in the near future. Always an avid consumer of #FOAMed, she is now excited to join the fun in producing this podcast! When not talking medicine, you can find her outside – hiking, sliding down snow hills, or simply, lost-on-purpose on a long walk in the Ottawa Greenbelt.
