Minor Procedures and GP-Focused Practice Designation in Dermatology
Dr. Simraaj Powar MB BCh BAO LRCSI LRCPI CFP PgDip(Derm), graduated from the prestigious Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland with a medical degree and Bachelor of Obstetrics. Dr. Powar subsequently completed her Family Medicine residency training in 2020 at the University of Western Ontario. She completed dedicated rotations in Dermatology, General Surgery/Plastics, Minor Medical Procedures, General Practice Dermatology, and Urban and Rural Obstetrics. Dr. Powar completed her postgraduate degree in Practical Dermatology from the University of Cardiff in 2022, which awarded her the title of GP Derm.

Dr. Powar’s intrigue for Dermatology stems from the ideology that ‘the skin is the window to the body’, and often can be an indicator of underlying pathology, and a major component of a person’s idea of self. Additionally, she has a curious affinity for visual clinical diagnosis, as evidenced by her numerous publications in the Canadian Journal of Diagnosis.
