Department of Medicine announces inaugural class of Academy of Master Clinicians
The Department of Medicine’s overriding mission is to ensure the delivery of excellent clinical care in its associated hospitals, and the preparation of future physician leaders that will help carry this mission forward throughout Canada and the World. Within the Department, certain faculty members serve as exemplars of this mission, providing leadership in patient care that elevates and enlarges the profession. The Department is pleased to announce the establishment of an Academy of Master Clinicians to honour those clinicians who have demonstrated consistent outstanding clinical performance and the highest standard of patient care.
The inaugural class of Master Clinicians recognizes those clinicians with a sustained record of clinical expertise. The Academy of Master Clinicians reflects those clinicians who are recognized by colleagues and the medical community for setting an example in high quality patient care, diagnostic acumen, and ability to confront challenging cases, while demonstrating humility, respect and civility for patients and colleagues.
