Message from the Dean

Queen’s Health Sciences is a remarkable faculty. Our success is a product of the initiative and action of our students, faculty, and staff, and of the collaboration across schools, faculties, and our partnering institutions, that is the hallmark of our academic health sciences centre. Our success is also augmented with the support of our alumni, and our partners in the private and public sectors.

One of the unique strengths of the Faculty of Health Sciences is that its structure encompasses the Schools of Medicine, Nursing and Rehabilitation Therapy. In May 2012, we published a new strategic framework for our three schools that affirmed a unified vision: ask questions, seek answers, advance care, inspire change.

Our new vision informs all of our initiatives: research, education, patient care and how we work with our faculty, students, practitioners, staff, alumni, benefactors, and the public and private sectors.

The Queen’s Initiative Campaign is an important moment, where our community can come together to support the most important priorities for our faculty, which will advance our faculty, inspire our people, and enable our vision.

The Faculty of Health Sciences is proud of the tradition where alumni classes celebrating milestone reunions raise funds for the Schools of Medicine, Nursing and Rehabilitation Therapy.

Faculty News

Damon Dagnone Publishes Powerful Memoir

I’m pleased to let you know that Dr. Damon Dagnone – Associate Professor in the Department of Emergency Medicine and our CBME Lead – has recently published a memoir called Finding Our Way Home: A Family’s Story of Life, Love, and Loss. Damon was kind enough to share the manuscript with me before it even came out, and I don’t know if I’ve ever finished a book faster. Damon’s story is almost impossible to put down once you start, and it is even more moving than it is gripping. I had always known that Damon was an excellent physician and educator.

Celebrating Career Milestones in the Faculty

On September 5th, we had one of my favourite annual events in the Faculty of Health Sciences: the Faculty Promotion Reception.  During this event, many of the Department Heads and I publically recognize our colleagues who have been promoted to the rank of Associate Professor or (Full) Professor. Celebrating these career milestones is important because it gives us, as a faculty, a chance to recognize the years of hard work and dedication that went into making these achievements possible. Getting promoted is no easy thing to do in the academy.
