Dr. Megan Kilvert
I was born and raised in Toronto, and completed my undergraduate studies in 2008 at Queen’s University, with degrees in Physical and Health Education and Life Sciences. I then headed back to Toronto where I attended medical school at the University of Toronto, graduating in 2013. Following that I moved west for my Pediatrics Residency training at BC Children’s Hospital, which I finished in 2018. I am so happy to have discovered the west coast- I love beautiful British Columbia.
I am working as a pediatrician at Fairmont Pediatrics and at BC Children’s Hospital. At BC Children’s Hospital I work on the Clinical Teaching unit, providing care to children admitted to the pediatric ward. In this role I am involved in teaching residents and medical students, and have an appointment as a Clinical Instructor with UBC’s Faculty of Medicine. I am also invested in supporting pediatric residents as they navigate the many challenges of medical training. I love the variety of general pediatrics and enjoy working with children of all ages.
When I’m not working, I love to spend time with my husband and out daughter exploring this beautiful city. I try to stay as active as I can by running, and swimming. In the summer time, you can find me on the ultimate frisbee field. Recently, I’ve rediscovered my love for cooking, reading (for pleasure) and jigsaw puzzles!
Fun facts about Dr. Kilvert
I was a torch-bearer for the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics. I won a contest (!) and got to carry the torch for 100m on the outskirts of Winnipeg as the flame made its way from east to west.
