Two residents at the Faculty of Medicine are being honoured for their research abstracts. Dr. Alexander Gregory, a resident in the Anaesthesia program, has earned the 2011 Canadian Society for Clinical Investigation (CSCI) Award for Excellence in Resident Research. Gregory’s abstract entitled “Both preparing to teach and teaching positively impact learning outcomes for peer teaching” was honoured by the CSCI and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), who co-sponsor the Annual Resident Research Award Program. This prize is awarded annually for the best resident research project conducted during an RCPSC/CFPC residency training program at each Canadian medical school.
Dr. Billie-Jean Martin, a resident in Cardiac Surgery, is also being honoured, this by the Office of Postgraduate Medical Education here at the Faculty of Medicine, for her abstract entitled "The association between cardiac rehabilitation and outcomes in patients with coronary artery disease: focus on women and the elderly".
Congratulations to these resident researchers, and a sincere thank you goes to the sponsors for encouraging and recognizing these efforts.
