Our strongest asset is people. Our dedication to excellence in teaching is reflected in the numerous awards that our Faculty have received over the years. We have many Educational Leaders in our Department who lend their expertise in the areas of undergraduate, postgraduate, international and simulation-based education. Educational projects are presented at our Anesthesia Research Interest Group Meetings, Annual Research Retreat and Research Exchange Day.We also have excellent support for educational research in the department, including Toni Tidy, our Department Research Coordinator and Dr. Lehana Thabane, who is a PhD biostatistician and research methodologist. The Program for Education and Development (PERD) in the Faculty of Health Sciences also is a valuable resource for educational research consultation and assistance. The Program for Faculty Development also provides excellent resources to help faculty develop their capacity as educators and scholars.

We will continue to work toward the promotion of educational excellence and scholarship in the Department of Anesthesia.
