About Me

About Me

Dr. Ameeta (Ami) Singh completed her undergraduate medical degree at Nottingham University (UK) in 1989. This was followed by an internal medicine residency and infectious diseases fellowship at the University of Alberta, which were completed in 1996. In 2002, she completed a Masters of Science in Epidemiology at Harvard University. 

She was the Alberta provincial consultant for sexually transmitted and blood borne infections (STBBI) from 1998 to 2008, and the Medical Director of the Edmonton STI Clinic from 1998 to 2014. She served as an HIV consultant for incarcerated women at the Edmonton Institution for Women from 2000-2017. She maintains a general infectious diseases practice at the Royal Alexandra Hospital in Edmonton and an HIV/STI outpatient practice at the Edmonton STI Clinic. She is also presently working as the Territorial Syphilis Medical Consultant for Nunavut.

Her academic interests are in the area of sexually transmitted infections and HIV, particularly in guideline development, program evaluation, prevention and rapid testing.

Global Health/Tropical Diseases has been a long standing area of interest of hers. In 2016, she completed the Gorgas Advanced Course in Tropical Medicine in Lima, Peru. She has previously worked as a WHO/PAHO consultant in the development of a national STI Strategy in Guyana and co-authored a background systematic review for the WHO HIV Treatment Guidelines in 2015. She has also served as a visiting Infectious Diseases lecturer at Mbarara University in Uganda.

Through her work, she has become keenly aware of the importance of the social determinants of health and in particular, the impact of homelessness on health. She currently serves on the Steering Committee of Pregnancy Pathways, an Edmonton based coalition which seeks to introduce a housing program for street involved pregnant women. She also serves on the Board of HIV Edmonton where she is interested in helping to reduce the stigma and discrimination associated with STBBI.

Her personal interests include spending time with family and friends, travelling and hiking especially in the Rockies. She maintains a personal goal of practicing more yoga!
