Please join me in congratulating Chad Kim Sing on being selected as the inaugural UBC-BH Emergency Medicine Leadership Fellow!
The UBC Department of Emergency Medicine and Brigham and Women’s Hospital at Harvard recently collaborated on the development of a 2 year program to build leadership skills in promising future EM leaders.
Chad is presently the department head for emergency medicine and medical director for emergency services at Vancouver Acute (VGH, UBCH, GF Strong).
Donations from private citizens were solicited and collected to fund the tuition and travel expenses for the program including mentorship and course work with Brigham and Women’s faculty, certification from the International Emergency Department Leadership Institute and certification from the Harvard School of Public Health for Centers Leadership Development for Physicians in Academic Health Centers.
Chad was selected from a pool of very strong applicants… a testament to the need, willingness and interest in leadership in our emergency medicine community. Chad will receive key mentorship and be able to extensively network with international physician leaders.
Our goal is to help build a broad base of innovative, forward thinking physicians with strong leadership skills in BC to effect the changes needed to improve care.
We hope to continue this program yearly and wish Chad the best of luck and enjoyment of the program.
