As a dentist in the Canadian Armed Forces, Jesse Barker had to think on his feet – a skill that's coming in handy during graduate dental training in the University of Toronto's Faculty of Dentistry.
“The skills you learn in military basic training help you so much as a student,” says Barker, a first-year student in the faculty’s prosthodontics graduate specialty program. “As a dental student and member of the military, you have to take care of yourself, be diligent, focused and organized, and have good habits and values.”
When the 2020 Paralympic Games wrapped up earlier this month, Stephanie Dixon, Canada’s chef de mission at the Games in Tokyo, had just enough time to change out of her Team Canada gear before embarking on a new quest: a master’s degree in kinesiology at the University of Toronto.
