DR. JULIA ALLEYNE, MD
Sports Medicine Physician
An associate clinical professor at the University of Toronto’s Department of Family and Community, I focus my practice on Sport and Exercise medicine. In addition, I maintained an active physiotherapy license for thirty years.
I have provided medical leadership to Skate Canada and Gymnastics Canada over the last twenty years and have served on the medical staff for five Canadian Olympic teams, including as Chief Medical Officer for the 2012 Canadian Olympic Team in London, England. In 2015, I acted as the Chief Medical Officer for the Pan and Parapan American Games in Toronto.
In 2013, I was the first family physician to be appointed chair of Bone and Joint Canada and was the Clinical Lead on the development of the CORE Back Tool, CORE Neck Tool and the OA Tool (Osteoarthritis). I have twice been honoured by the Canadian Association for the Advancement of Women in Sport and Physical Activity, receiving the Most Influential Women in Sport and Physical Activity Award in 2003 and 2015.
