Herb Parkin Award - 2nd Annual (2017)

We are very pleased to announce Crackcast as our second annual winner of the Herb Parkin Award.  Learners today don't learn the same way as they did in the past.  Instead, they do a lot of their learning through podcasts.  For example, Crackcast has taken lessons from Rosen's and turned them into podcasts that can be downloaded and listened to as often as a learner likes.  This helps the learner review and understand the 'core' concepts of emergency medicine.

Here is a link so you can watch the video  of Dr. Caroline Tyson presenting the winner.

Clinical Faculty Award for Career Excellence in Clinical Teaching 2016

We are delighted to inform everyone that...  Dr. Barry Miller has won the 2016 Clinical Faculty Award for Career Excellence in Clinical Teaching

Dr. Miller has been a member of the Royal Columbian Physician group since 1981, teaching for UBC for 34 years.  The Emergency Medicine group at Royal Columbian and Eagle Ridge Hospitals has a long and proud teaching history, and Dr. Miller has always been a core member of the team.  Over his career, he has literally taught thousands of medical students and residents, so back in early January of 2016 our group decided to nominate Dr. Miller for this award because we sincerely believed that he had contributed a tremendous amount to furthering the education of British Columbia‚Äôs doctors, and he has certainly been a superb influence on and example to its current educators.  The nomination process was definitely a trip down memory lane and we enjoyed the memories so much that we actually turned it into a specially bound booklet and presented it to Dr. Miller during his retirement party with room for signatures and well wishes at the back.

 

Clinical Teacher of the Year Award | 2014 - 2015

 

On April 22nd during the RCH EM Grand Rounds session Dr. David Migneault (R4), on behalf of the group of residents, presented Dr. Doug Brown with this year's Clinical Teacher of the Year Award.  

The Clinical Teacher of the Year Award is given to someone who has made an outstanding contribution to the emergency medicine residency program or the betterment of our EM residents.  Important qualities include leadership skills, effective teaching, contagious enthusiasm, innovation and role modelling.  Dr. Brown is well known to go above and beyond to teach and support the residents.  He frequently sacrifices his personal time to provide extra help and guidance to trainees.  Dr. Brown is a real inspiration within our community and shines at the international level.  His enthusiasm and creative leadership are deeply appreciated.  During tough times of residency, Dr. Brown has a unique way to ensure his residents are learning and loving Emergency Medicine.  Respected for his bedside manners and the quality of his interactions with the different players of the emergency department, he is a real role model of professionalism.  Dr. Brown is the type of physician we, one day, hope to become and today, it is time to acknowledge him as a key player and thank him for devoting his life to emergency medicine and particularly to us, residents.

Thank you Dr. Brown!
