One of the key mandates of the Department is to ensure that we identify and recruit the best physicians back to Calgary and to the Department of Medicine; the caliber of people that we want to recruit are those who will be the medical leaders of tomorrow – be that in education, research or administration. Dr. Leigh is working in close collaboration with the various University Research Institutes to ensure that we identify the appropriate research support and infrastructure for these folks when they do come back to Calgary, so that they are successful in their academic careers. Consistent with the priority of getting the best people back to Calgary, we have also undertaken an initiative to enhance our Departmental mentorship program and our new faculty onboarding program; Dr. Jeff Schaefer is leading the latter initiative, and held the first workshop for new faculty in the late fall.
