Dr. Lorenza Malaguti

Medical Director

Dr. Malaguti graduated in 2014 from St. George’s University with honours, where she spent her final year of clinical studies at Cornell University. Following graduation, she completed a rotating internship at Western Veterinary Specialists and Emergency Centre and focused her medicine towards emergency and critical care.

Given her love for teaching, she worked closely with the University of Calgary to teach surgical skills to 3rd year students and anatomy class to 1st year students. After working in numerous emergency clinics across Alberta and British Columbia, Dr. Malaguti joined the McKnight team in early January 2019 as Medical Director to provide quality medicine and a high standard of care.
