Dr. Porfiris was born and raised in Toronto and received his MD from the University of Toronto in 1994.

He began to practice both family and emergency medicine at TEGH soon after graduating and then became interested in teaching while working in the emergency department. He became the director of Emergency undergraduate and postgraduate medical education in 2007 and has enjoyed the role since then. He was appointed as Assistant Professor in the Department of Family and Community Medicine at the University of Toronto in 2005. Dr. Porfiris has had the privilege to teach medical students, residents and fellows in the Emergency Department at TEGH. He has been invited to speak on topics related to Emergency Medicine Care at the hospital rounds as well as city, provincial and national conferences. He lives in Toronto with his wife Eli and his 2 children, Stephanie and Teddy. He enjoys playing soccer, reading, and travelling. Dr. Porfiris believes the emergency department is the ideal place to teach trainees of all levels from medical students to specialty residents. The variety of case presentations, acuity, procedures, interpretation of lab testing and diagnostic imaging cannot be replicated in any other field.
