Adom Bondzi-Simpson is in his final year of study in the University of Calgary’s MD program. He completed his BSc in Health Science at Brock University in 2013, where he learned the value of team play, leadership and community involvement on the men’s basketball team.
After completing his BSc, Adom was recruited to the University of Calgary during the peak of the Eyes High Strategy, an initiative to make the university one of Canada’s top-five research universities. He was drawn to the plethora of translational research opportunities and by Alberta’s beautiful Rocky Mountains. In 2016, he completed his MSc in Immunology and, wanting to amalgamate his passions for science and clinical medicine, he started in Calgary’s Leaders in Medicine (LIM) program, a joint MD/graduate degree program.
In his spare time, Adom enjoys sports. He is actively involved in activities from hockey to downhill skiing. Knowing he is a bit of a weekend warrior, his ultimate goal is to not tear an Achilles tendon before his 30th birthday. Realizing the major role sport played in his life, his greatest enjoyment has been coaching youth basketball, where building strong players on and off the court is his ultimate goal.
