Dept of Pathology welcomes Dr. Naveena Singh, MD
Dr. Naveena Singh, Clinical Professor, UBC, Anatomic Pathologist, Vancouver General Hospital
I am an anatomic pathologist with a particular interest in gynaecological cancer. I am Indian but was born in Washington, DC, USA. My father was a diplomat and after I was born we lived in Kathmandu, Khartoum, Delhi, London, Madrid and Rangoon. I am the middle child of 5 siblings and every few years we would leave our friends and life behind and start again! I have married to an English artist for 27 years and we have 3 children. These factors have all been constant and enduring lessons in diplomacy, team-working and survival!
I studied Medicine in Delhi, India, and then went on to train in diagnostic pathology first in India and then in the United Kingdom. Before coming over to this country I worked at St Bartholomew’s and the Royal London Hospitals in London, UK. I am delighted and honoured to have this opportunity to work in one of the world’s foremost clinical and research teams in the field of gynaecological cancer. I sincerely hope that I can contribute to the wonderful work being carried out here. My life’s motto has always been to accept every opportunity gratefully and work at it with all my heart, and I look forward to applying this at UBC in the very near future!
