Early Life and Education
Adam Neufeld graduated from the University of Saskatchewan and completed his residency at the University of Calgary. With expertise and training in mental health, women’s health, sports medicine and lifestyle medicine – as well as being comfortable treating various ages of patients from newborns to senior citizens – Adam takes great pride in providing quality care for each of his patients.
Adam is most often associated with the Hebrew word adam, which translates to “earth” or “red”. However, its roots can also be found in Akkadian adamu which translates to “make”. Adam plays an important part in Genesis creation story as well as subsequent folkloric and mystical tales; appearing both within Christian and Islamic scripture as well as Quranic literature as well as Gnosticism elaborations – hence he has become a popular English name among both genders.
Adam is a generalist whose interests range from sports medicine to mental health and wellness. An excellent listener and communicator, Adam takes great pleasure in helping his patients understand how their bodies work – helping them live longer, healthier lives in turn. Adam is also an advocate for medical education as well as current research related to biomedical technology and neuroscience.
As a graduate from the University of Saskatchewan, Dr. Hinton completed his residency at Calgary’s West Campus.
