Announcement — Acting Assistant Dean, Continuing Health Sciences Education Program

Marcel Doré, MD

Appointment is effective starting July 1, 2010 through June 30, 2011.

June 25, 2010

From: Susan D. Denburg, PhD, Associate Vice President (Academic), Faculty of Health Sciences

Dr. Marcel Doré is currently an Assistant Clinical Professor in the Department of Family Medicine at McMaster and a Hospitalist at Guelph General Hospital.  He is based at the Waterloo Regional Campus of the Michael G. DeGroote School of Medicine where he is the Faculty Development and Continuing Health Science Education Coordinator; he will continue in this role.  Dr. Doré is a graduate of McGill University Medical School (1985) and completed a rotating internship at McMaster University in 1986.

Dr. Doré has worked with many partners in the development of Continuing Health Education (CHE) programs and brings extensive experience and a broad network of contacts to the role of Assistant Dean.   Dr. Doré has been a member of the Faculty of Health Sciences CHSE Advisory Board and the Faculty Development Advisory Board since November 2008, bringing forth the perspective of the regional campus. His education experience dates back to his time as a medical officer in the Canadian Forces Medical Services School. One of the original founding members of the Canadian Association for Continuing Health Education (CACHE), Dr. Doré has designed and developed accredited CHE programs in collaboration with University CHE offices, Specialist Societies, pharmaceutical industry partners and other CHE partners. As an independent CHE consultant, he has developed expertise in facilitating advisory boards, training in facilitating small-group learning and design of CHE programs. In addition to his work in continuing education, Dr. Doré has also been a tutor for the MF5 undergraduate medical curriculum and is an active clinical preceptor for medical students, clerks and residents.

In administrative roles, Dr. Doré has been Chief of the Department of Family Medicine and the Department of Hospital Medicine at the Guelph General Hospital and Chair of the Section of Hospitalist Medicine of the Ontario Medical Association. He also brings experience in working collaboratively with the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care as well as with the Ontario Hospitals Association.

I welcome Dr. Doré to this senior academic administrative position.  He will be taking on the role that Dr. Gregory Peachey has most ably filled since 2005. During Dr. Peachey’s tenure, the CHSE office was reorganized and put on a sound financial footing.  Policies and procedures were streamlined and guidelines developed to enable best practice in development of CE events.  Offerings were significantly expanded with a growth of interprofessional events and the CHSE program achieved a successful accreditation. I would like to thank Dr. Peachey for his valuable contributions.
