As a member of the Department of Anesthesiology, I have been actively involved in clinical care and teaching across all three campuses since The Ottawa Hospital was formed in 1998.  Administratively, I have served as the Anesthesia Site Chief at the Civic Campus for a five year term and have been a member of many hospital and departmental committees, including being a current member of the Department of Anesthesiology Executive Committee.

Soon after TOHAMO was formed in 2003, I became a member of our Department’s AFP Committee and in the last three years I have chaired this committee.  As Chair, it has allowed me to gain considerable knowledge about the AFP and TOHAMO at both a departmental level and more globally across the entire hospital. 

I am seeking the available OHPA position on the TOHAMO Board for the following reasons: 1) TOHAMO continues to evolve and it is likely that it will undergo considerable change over the next few years because of both internal and external forces, 2) there needs to be strong, knowledgeable physician representation on the Board to advocate on behalf of all the physicians and surgeons that belong to the AFP, and 3) I believe I have the necessary skills and knowledge to fairly represent all members of the AFP at the TOHAMO Board level.
