Department of Medicine Annual Report 2021



I am pleased to present our online 2021 Annual Report.

Through the chaos of successive variants and waves of COVID last year, our department members found new ways to counter pandemic barriers and accomplish their work. They provided the best care on the front lines in hospitals, clinics, and through virtual patient consultations. They pivoted to virtual technology, ensuring the continuity and quality of their projects. They delivered support for students to cope with the added pressures of learning during a pandemic and delivered superb medical education with flexibility to accommodate each week’s new crisis.

Our members are tackling some of the greatest challenges in health, including those emerging from COVID. While our research is supported by many benefactors, we welcome additional support with gratitude.
