As an Assistant Clinical Professor of Medicine, he greatly enjoys teaching medical students, residents and fellows at the University of British Columbia the finer points of the brain-eye connection.
Neurologist. Dr. Kanungo attained his PhD in Molecular Biology from the University of Toronto for his work in decoding the molecular pathways which govern neuronal programmed cell death. He then moved west to attend medical school at the University of Calgary, after which he completed his Neurology Residency training at the University of Manitoba. This was followed by a Fellowship in Movement Disorders at the University of Manitoba funded by Parkinson Canada. He is a Clinical Assistant Professor in the Department of Medicine, University of British Columbia and one of three Neurologists practicing in the Fraser Health Movement Disorders Clinic. He actively participates in the training of medical students and residents, and maintains an interest in research aimed at improving the lives of people with movement disorders.
Neurologist. Dr. Bogusz started his medical training on the West Coast completing his Masters in Neuroscience and his MD at the University of British Columbia before moving to the prairies to complete his Neurology training at the University of Alberta. He went on to complete a neuromuscular fellowship at the University of British Columbia, and practices neurology with a specific specialty interest in neuromuscular disorders and headache. He is currently a Clinical Instructor at the University of British Columbia, and thoroughly enjoys educating all levels of our BC medical trainees.
