As I seek to support my colleagues and patients I find myself in physician leadership roles. I am currently the Clinical Lead for cervical cancer screening in the Waterloo/Wellington region of Ontario.
In the past I served as Undergrad Chair for the OB/GYN program at McMaster University. This made me responsible for the clinical education of medical students in that field. I have also served as president of the Christian Medical and Dental Society of Canada and as president of the Medical Staff of Groves Memorial Community Hospital in Fergus, Ontario. Those roles involved chairing meetings, mediating competing interests, managing public relations and human resources and other leadership tasks.
These roles have given me valuable experience and helped me to serve others in an increasingly effective way.
