About Dr. Harvey

Greg Harvey is a Paediatric Emergency Medicine Physician and Point of Care Ultrasound Team Member at the Hospital for Sick Children. He also serves as the Epic physician lead for the department. He is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Paediatrics at the University of Toronto. Dr. Harvey has taught many national and international PEM POCUS workshops integrating low-fidelity simulation into ultrasound learning. He is interested in the integration and optimization of current and emerging technologies to improve paediatric care. When he isn’t focused on all the problems of the Epic build and venting those frustrations through actual clinical care, he’s happily home practicing photography on his favourite subject, his new son.
