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.

Why is Transformation of Healthcare so Hard?

The need for change in healthcare has been obvious for years. Many studies have been conducted and recommendations made on what’s needed to meet optimally the needs of the population in the current and coming decades. But change itself has been very scarce.

2-minute survey to assess awareness of charitable organizations

We are a group of PhD students on Queen’s campus looking to assess the awareness of charity organizations in Kingston amongst the Queen’s community.

If you are interested in completing this 2-minute survey, please follow the link below. There will be an opportunity to participate in a later survey as well at the end of February. Your participation is not only helping us to complete our project but is providing essential information to the charity organizations within the Kingston community.

Faculty, staff, & students encouraged to take cyber security course

Security awareness training is an important part of Queen's University IT Security Program. The aim of this course is to establish a foundational knowledge across the Queen's community regarding threats you may face online, and how to protect your personal data and Queen's systems and information.

A forecast of my next six months

I’m not sure exactly what I’m going to do with myself. Though not entirely true, I am about to start six months, technically known as administrative leave and commonly known as sabbatical. So, you won’t see me blogging until I get back in July, but I assure you that I will be back reenergized, recharged, and firing on eight cylinders for my final two years in my term as dean.
