Dr. Fatehi obtained a double major in Mathematics and Physics (Hons) at the University of Prince Edward Island. He subsequently moved to the University of Toronto for his medical degree and also received a MSc degree in molecular genetics. Early research and clinical exposures to neurosurgical oncology and epilepsy surgery influenced his career aspirations. Thus, upon the completion of his neurosurgical residency in Vancouver, Dr. Fatehi spent a year with Dr. Walter Hader at the University of Calgary to gain further experience in adult and pediatric epilepsy surgery.
