Department of Medicine Annual Report 2020



I am pleased to present our online 2020 Annual Report.

At every stage of the COVID-19 pandemic, our Department of Medicine members came through with their dedication and commitment.  Clinician members across the Edmonton zone joined together to share the burden of COVID clinical care.  Education leaders switched to online teaching and assessment at all levels of medical learning.  Researchers paused their main areas of interest when needed and pursued greater understanding of this new pathogen.  Administrative staff ensured patients had top notch clinical care virtually.

I invite you to read the stories of our pandemic response in this report, a response that will shape future medical education, research, and patient care in our province and globally.
