Colbourne is a Transplant Hepatology Physician Assistant at Toronto General. Colbourne works with transplant patients who are immunocompromised, on the frontlines of #COVID19:
While maintaining his full-time position with Multi-Organ Transplant (MOT) he has been working as a Clinical Staff as part of the COVID-19 screening at the Toronto General Hospital.
He encourages everyone to adhere to social distancing and to help those in need during isolation.
As the number of cases in Ontario continue to grow, the transplant department is making many different precautions to protect their immunosuppressed patients and to free resources and beds for the ICU.
While the number of transplants at Toronto General Hospital have been reduced in light of COVID-19, the life-saving procedure is still necessary to offer to patients in need.
Colbourne is currently one of four PAs working with the Multi-Organ Transplant team. He is a UofT PA Graduate.
