Following the completion of her undergraduate medical degree at the University of Toronto, Dr. Best completed her residency training at McMaster University in 2009. She went on to do a two year Fellowship in Urogynecology and reconstructive pelvic surgery at the University of Toronto, Mount Sinai Hospital. Dr. Best returned to McMaster University and joined the Department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology in 2012, with a clinical practice focused on pelvic organ prolapse and urinary incontinence, and a keen interest in surgical education.
In January 2016, Dr. Best moved her clinical practice to the community of Halton and began her work as a Urogynecologist at the new Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital. Surgical teaching has remained a priority in her daily practice, creating a new community site for the McMaster Obstetrics and Gynecology residents during the Urogynecology rotation. Her practice is entirely dedicated to Urogynecology, with an interest and focus on minimally invasive surgical techniques.
She is currently an Assistant Clinical Professor in the Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology, McMaster University
