Marjorie E. Dixon
Dr. Marjorie E. Dixon , MD, FRCSC, FACOG


Dr. Dixon is a graduate of McGill University’s school of medicine. Following her initial postgraduate training at the University of Toronto in obstetrics and gynecology, Dr. Dixon completed her postgraduate training at the University of Vermont with a three-year subspecialty at the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology accredited fellowship in reproductive endocrinology and infertility.

She joined the department of obstetrics and gynecology at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre more than a decade ago, and she continues to be an involved member today. In 2005, she was appointed assistant professor at the University of Toronto, where she actively participates in the education of medical students and residents.

As an advisory board member of the Ministry of Health, Dr. Dixon played an instrumental role in the approval of the 2015 IVF Ontario Funding Program. She is an invited speaker at both national and international conferences in her field of reproductive endocrinology and infertility and she continuously advocates for women’s health.

Since 2010, on the last Thursday of every month, Dr. Dixon has been a regular feature on the CityLine television program, educating Canada on women’s health. Dr. Dixon’s passion for educating women on their reproductive health encouraged her to open Anova Fertility & Reproductive Health in 2016. Anova is a full-service fertility centre exclusively focused on reproductive medicine and women’s health. It is also home to the first next-generation IVF lab in Canada.
