Dr Geoffrion completed her medical degree at McGill University in 2001 and her residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Ottawa in 2006. She then pursued subspecialty fellowship training in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery, as well as a Faculty Teaching Certificate at the University of Calgary.
Dr Geoffrion is the director of the UBC Advanced Training Program in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery, and the ObGyn resident rotation in Urogynecology.
