Martin Kuuskne is an Emergency Room Doctor who works at Brampton Civic Hospital. As soon as he starts speaking about his job, it’s easy to hear the passion he has for his profession and helping others in his voice. But it wasn’t always about science and medicine.

Eventually, Martin made the decision to pursue his studies at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, where he completed a Bachelor of Health Sciences. Ever the keener, he was accepted to the Michael G. Degroote School of Medicine at McMaster University in his third undergraduate year and entered medical school as one of the youngest in his cohort.
