Dartmouth, Nova Scotia
Obstetrician and Gynaecologist

Area 8, Division B
(NOVA SCOTIA)

Candidate statement

I see this position as an opportunity to both assist colleagues in reducing their medico-legal risk and to reduce membership risk overall by improving the culture and safety of care delivery. I bring to this role my almost 20-year experience as an Obstetrician/Gynecologist in Atlantic Canada, working in an academic tertiary setting, but also providing care in a solo community office. Through my provincial medical association and American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists board experience, and as faculty of an international advanced laparoscopic course, I bring to the board a unique global perspective on current and emerging issues facing physicians and residents, along with patient safety and physician wellness initiatives being rolled out worldwide. I have received formal leadership and communication training, and have a clear understanding of sound governance, finances, and board responsibility. If elected, I will act with honesty and integrity, to oversee the conduct of business of the Association, and work diligently to ensure the long-term success of the Association, consistent with its Strategic Plan and responsibilities to membership.
