Nigel Tan


Cardiac Electrophysiology Fellow

The coolest things I've done in my career are:

I’ve served as a Chief Cardiology Resident and Chief Medical Resident, which were both unique opportunities to provide advocacy and mentorship to trainees who are following paths I recently travelled. I am fortunate to have met and collaborated with outstanding scientists in cardiovascular medicine and helped published novel research (

During medical school, I received a Dr. Harry Whittaker Memorial Award that always meant a great deal to me because it was selected by the student body.

If I could have a super power it would be:

It was previously flying, but I now feel like teleportation in a city like Toronto would be even more special.

I'm a "closet" fan of:

Any Richard Linklater film, especially his romance films and Boyhood (yes, all 2h46min of it).

The nerdiest thing I do in my spare time is:

Watch a Japanese cartoon anime series called Dragonball Super (formerly Dragonball Z), a relic from my childhood that has aged better than a fine wine. 

Three things still on my bucket list are:

  1. Visit Tanzania to photograph the great wildebeest migration, explore Serengeti National Park, and climb Mt. Kilimanjaro

  2. Go a cycling trip throughout France

  3. Visit space (one day…)


My past experience includes:

I am currently (as of July 1, 2018) enrolled in a clinical fellowship in adult electrophysiology at St. Michael’s Hospital – a subspecialty focused on the diagnosis and treatment of heart rhythm disorders. Prior to that, I completed residency training in cardiology and internal medicine, both at the University of Toronto.
