Olive Fertility Centre is pleased to announce that Dr. Riki Dayan MD FRCSC has joined the Olive Fertility Victoria Team. "We are delighted to welcome Dr. Dayan to Olive Fertility," says Olive co-director Dr. Niamh Talon. "With her expertise in fertility, her dedication to education and her focus on whole person, patient-centred care, Dr. Dayan is an invaluable addition to the Olive Team."


Dr. Dayan (she/her) received her Bachelor of Science (Honours) degree at the University of Victoria. She then went on to complete medical school and Obstetrics and Gynecology residency training at the University of British Columbia (UBC). Having personally experienced infertility and recurrent pregnancy loss, Dr. Dayan developed an interest in the field and pursued formal fellowship training in Gynecologic Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility at McMaster University. She is doubly certified by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada in Obstetrics and Gynecology and in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility.


With both her personal and professional understanding of the emotional impact of infertility, Dr. Dayan is committed to better understanding how to best support fertility patients on their journey to parenthood. Her areas of research have focused on the role of mindfulness meditation in infertility and the impact of air pollution on fertility. Further, she is dedicated to medical education through her medical education research, as a member of the Center for Health Education Scholarship and as a Clinical Instructor at UBC.


Dr. Dayan feels immensely privileged to be in this field and to accompany her patients on their fertility journeys. She believes that just as each person is unique, so is each fertility journey. She is grateful for the opportunity to develop personal relationships with her patients and to help them navigate the world of fertility care. In addition, she is excited about the advanced technologies like AI that are emerging and improving outcomes for patients.


"I feel very privileged to be able to work in the field of fertility care. It's one of the most innovative and rapidly changing areas in medicine today. With new technologies that are now available, the chance of achieving a successful pregnancy is extremely high," says Dr. Dayan.


Dr. Dayan is delighted to return to Victoria and serve the community on Vancouver Island. When she is not working, she can be found trail running, meditating, and spending time with her family.
