Harjot Kaur Shoker

Congratulations to second-year MScOT student Harjot Kaur Shoker on receiving a Student Leadership Award from the University of Toronto! 

During her time in the program, Harjot has played a pivotal role in enhancing the student experience for her peers as a member of the Student Affairs Committee. 

Harjot has generously volunteered her time to attend and present at our open house for new students where she enthusiastically welcomed incoming students and shared her experience in the MScOT program at the Mississauga campus.  

“Harjot is an outstanding student leader as demonstrated by how she engages students throughout the university,” says Priya Sivathason, the program manager in the department of occupational science and occupational therapy who has worked closely with Harjot at information sessions and orientation events. “Throughout her time in the program, Harjot has been a passionate advocate for academic excellence, embodying the qualities that make her an outstanding candidate for this award.” 

We are grateful for all of Harjot’s contributions to our department and Temerty Faculty of Medicine.  

Congratulations, Harjot, on this wonderful achievement!
