Stephanie Ong received her Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy from the University of Toronto in 2001 and continued her training as a pharmacy resident at the Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre. In 2010, Ong completed her Masters of Science in Health Informatics, where her main research interests lie with developing and implementing digital tools to help promote health care delivery models in patients with chronic disease, pharmacy practice and enhance the patient’s medication management.

Ong is presently a clinical pharmacist in nephrology with the University Health Network (UHN), where she is actively involved in the ambulatory renal clinics. Along with her clinical role, Ong leads clinical projects with the Division of Nephrology to develop and implement digital tools to promote chronic kidney disease (CKD) care and health delivery. These projects have been presented extensively in both national and international conferences. 

At the Leslie Dan Faculty of Pharmacy, Ong co-coordinates the PharmD (PHM 202) and is a clinical instructor for APPE students and MTM labs.
