Dr. Riki Dayan

“Dr. Dayan is committed to better understanding how we can best support our fertility patients.”

Dr. Riki 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, she 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 Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility.


Dr. Dayan is committed to better understanding how we can best support our fertility patients. 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 committed 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. She also loves utilizing advancing technologies and staying up-to-date on the literature (all which feed her inner nerd!).


Dr. Dayan is excited 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.
