Anneliese Mills

Anneliese is a currently a senior medical student at the University of Toronto (UofT), Faculty of Medicine. She earned an honours Bachelor of Arts from UofT in 2017 (majoring in history and anthropology) and a Master of Arts in medical anthropology from UofT in 2019. Her master’s research focused on allied health professionals’ experience with Medical Assistance in Dying (Canada’s recently-legalized form of assisted death) through the lenses of ethics, narrative, and care. For the summer of 2020, Anneliese’s main research interest is the impact of the ongoing COVID-19 crisis on medical education. Both formal and informal curriculums were adapted for online/distance learning, causing numerous changes in traditional practices such as cadaveric dissections, morning reports, and bedside teaching on the physical exam. Prior to the pandemic, Anneliese played cello with her university orchestra and took lessons for figure skating and trampoline. More recently, in her spare time, she can be found reading, hiking with her standard poodle, and practicing home yoga.
