Dr Aguanno portraitThe College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario will present Dr. Alaina Aguanno with a certificate as Physician No. 100,000 to be licensed for practice in the province since it started issuing registration numbers in 1866.

CPSO Registrar Dr. Rocco Gerace will make the presentation at a meeting of the College Council in chambers on Sept. 10, 2013.

Dr. Aguanno joins an illustrious line of doctors licensed by the College in its 147-year history, including Dr. Norman Bethune, Dr. Frederick Banting, Dr. Jenny Trout, Dr. William Osler, and Dr. Roberta Bondar.

Dr. Aguanno is completing her certification in emergency medicine and will join the London Health Sciences Centre in July as a staff physician. She graduated from the University of Calgary’s faculty of medicine in 2010. A native of Toronto, she graduated near the top of her class at Etobicoke Collegiate.

In addition to her medical degree, Dr. Aguanno has an undergraduate degree in Biological Anthropology from Harvard University and a Master’s degree in Health Policy and Health Economics from the London School of Economics.

“In presenting Dr. Aguanno with CPSO No. 100,000, we will be marking an important milestone in the College’s 147-year history of licensing doctors. Dr. Aguanno is a remarkable young doctor with an impressive record of achievements to date. We welcome her to the profession and wish her every success in her medical career,” said Dr. Gerace.
