Cyril studied his Undergrad in Biochemistry at Memorial University of Newfoundland. Then he went to McGill and achieved a MSc in Experimental Surgery with a specialty in Lung Transplantation Immunology. He started his career as a Perfusionist in 1995 and worked at the Montreal General Hospital and later Sunnybrook Health Science Center until in 2000 he became the Clinical Coordinator of Perfusion at Trillium Health Centre where he enjoyed the excitement of opening up a new cardiac program. In 2011, after over 10 years at Trillium and much deliberation, Cyril chose to leave his family at Trillium to take on a much more challenging role and became the Manager of Perfusion at University Health Network where he currently works with 20 of the most dedicated Perfusion colleagues that he has ever known. Perfusion has always been his passion. His philosophy is to give back to the Perfusion community any way he can. For Cyril that has always translated into sharing the knowledge gained through all of one’s experiences. Everyone has something to contribute whether they realize it or not. It is Cyril’s pleasure to serve on the CSCP Board to again give back to the community and profession.
