Dr. Jennifer Gillis-Doyle is a specialist physician practising exclusively in palliative care with more than 16 years’ experience in health care. She brings a wealth of knowledge having practised in both rural and urban settings, in both fee-for-service and salaried models of care, and having transitioned from a full scope of family practice to a focused practice as a palliative care consultant.

As a medical educator, she is committed to safe medical care, and is the chair of the CMPA’s Safe Medical Care Committee which oversaw the recent launch of the online resident education programs. Dr. Gillis-Doyle sits on the CMPA Culture Sub-committee to advance equity, diversity, and inclusion at the CMPA. She also sits as a member of the Saegis board of directors, providing governance oversight to the promotion of high-impact educational and coaching programs.

The CMPA Nominating Committee values Dr. Gillis-Doyle’s deep understanding of the complexities associated with end-of-life care, along with her governance experience, leadership and mentoring roles.
