Dr. Ardelle C. Stauffer MD

Ottawa ON
Ardelle Stauffer is an R3 from University of Saskatchewan, and her interests range from simple to sociable, being both a knitter of scarves and a three-time host of the CaRMS Applicant/ Resident dinner party.

Raised in rural Alberta, she realized her interest in medicine while working at Alberta Hospital Ponoka as a psychiatric aide. After volunteering in a missionary hospital in the Dominican Republic, she pursued a B.Sc. at Trinity Western University in Langley, BC. Ardelle and her husband, Mark, were subsequently thrilled when she was accepted into UBC Medical School, where she quickly gravitated towards O&G. Saskatchewan has been a wonderful residency program, allowing her to carve out a niche not only with the SOGC Junior Committee, but also with the Saskatchewan and Canadian Resident Associations. Having been inspired by many wonderful teachers, and seeing the enthusiasm her resident colleagues have for maintaining and improving the quality of O&G training, her future aspirations include pursuing a Masters of Education.

Ardelle is excited to have this opportunity to glean and grow ideas with residents across the country, and represent them at the SOGC.
