His research training in respirology was in pulmonary physiology and lung mechanics both at The University of Toronto and the Mayo Clinic.
Dr. Hutcheon is a physician who has explored the intersections of the arts and health. Opera in medical education is a particular interest.

We have used opera as the cultural vehicle for this exploration. This has been my primary research interest for the past ten years."
