Dear PARO GC Members,
It has been a privilege to serve on PARO’s Board of Directors over the last year, and I ask for your support in continuing in my role on the PARO Board.
I have represented residents’ interests on various education and administrative liaison committees which will continue to serve me well when speaking on behalf of our membership. I believe my working knowledge of the current medical education landscape, PARO-CAHO contract, and issues faced by residents will be an asset to the PARO Board moving forward.
As past Ottawa Site Chair, I secured funds and have since aided in the process of designing the Ottawa Special Projects Fund. Without the solutions-oriented and tireless work of this organization, the timely creation and implementation of this fund would not be possible. This is an example of the work that motivates and inspires me to return to a leadership role within this organization.
I gained valuable experience and acquired insight as board lead for the overnight non-urgent page reduction strategy committee and OMA Physician Health Program Advisory Panel representative; this will help me better support all residents as we collectively struggle with issues such as call shifts and fatigue risk management.
This year, I aspire to apply my skillset to the investigative contract team in order to propel pilot project results forward and initiate change that will impact the working conditions for residents of Ontario. In addition, I am motivated to continue my involvement and delivery of the Teaching to Teach Program given the ongoing positive feedback and opportunity to foster a future of excellent clinical educators.
I encourage you to share any ideas you have with me and would love to hear from you. Thank you for your consideration!
