Jeffrey Toy

Jeffrey Toy is a resident physician in dermatology at the University of British Columbia. He earned his medical doctorate from the same institution. Jeffrey’s interest in working with and for populations with facial differences stem from childhood experiences of severe acne and experiencing stigmatization at a very young age. Jeffrey’s interest in medicine only grew when he learned about facial differences with genetic causes within the pediatric population during high school biology classes. He subsequently came to recognize that a career which could help people with facial differences medically, socially and psychologically would be extremely personally fulfilling. Jeffrey has many research interests and has presented research on topics such as barriers to healthcare access in dermatology and the medico-legal aspects of dermatology. He is excited to bring his clinical training and experiences to AboutFace’s Constituency Committee.
