Awards & Celebrating Our Success

The Department of Medicine was proud to celebrate our Annual Awards Ceremony on Monday, May 7th, 2018 at the Hamilton Golf and Country Club. Drs. Mark Crowther, Lori Whitehead and Paul O'Byrne gave opening remarks, and we were honoured to welcome one of our earliest recruits to the Department, Dr. William (Bill) Goldberg, who joined the Department in 1972. The 2017-18 Career Awards, Teaching Awards, and the Jack Hirsh Award for Outstanding Academic Achievement were presented. Recognition was given for Key Roles in the Department, and two new endowed chairs were announced. The new Full, Associate, Clinical Professors, and Associate Clinical Professors were also introduced.
