My primary appointment is to the department of Medicine.
I would describe myself as a clinician educator.
My job description is education (45%), research (25%) administration (20%) and clinical activity (10%).
In education I have been running the occupational medicine residency program. I have developed a new occupational medicine option in community health projects, and am developing a graduate course – PHS 520. My research involves the epidemiology of work related disease, and systematic reviews. Administrative contributions include executive roles in a number of national organizations, ex-editor of a journal, and associate chair faculty affairs for the Department of Medicine (stepped down Sept 2013). My clinical practice includes occupational health, occupational lung disease, complex fitness for work, and helping to establish an occupational medicine clinic at the University of Alberta.
I would be able to provide mentorship for those involved in residency program administration, (I attended the Manager Role Train the Trainer workshop of RCPC), classroom teaching, research in epidemiology, and work related problems, and administration (organizational strategies and audit and review).
