Stacey Skoretz received her doctorate from the Faculty of Medicine’s Department of Speech-Language Pathology at the University of Toronto. Her research program focuses on artificial airways and their impact on upper airway physiology with an emphasis on swallowing function following cardiovascular surgery, organ transplantation and critical illness.
For her entire career she has and continues to work as a clinician in quaternary-level cardiovascular, neuroscience and critical care units. This guides her work in the advancement of evidence-based practice in the field of swallowing and its disorders.
She has been an invited speaker on many occasions and lecturer at both the University of Alberta and the University of Toronto. She was awarded the Dysphagia Research Society New Investigator Award in 2012. However, nothing brings her more joy than being a wife and mother.
Dr. Skoretz began working in the School as an Assistant Professor, tenure-track, in September of 2016
