Dr. Mark McKinney recognized with PGME Faculty Award

Congratulations to Dr. Mark McKinney, Clinical Instructor with the UBC Department of Emergency Medicine (DEM), for being recognized for his outstanding service to postgraduate medical education (PGME) at UBC with a PGME Faculty Award.

“I really want to add value for our residents in whatever way I can, and I am always looking for ways that I can do better. This award is both humbling and motivating for me to keep improving. Our residents are incredibly professional, driven, and inspiring. I find it so rewarding to be a part of this community.”
– Dr. Mark McKinney

Dr. McKinney is currently finishing his first year of practice as an emergency physician at Vancouver General Hospital and UBC Hospital. He completed medical school at the University of Alberta, residency at the University of Ottawa, and completed a Master of Education this year through the University of Ottawa.

Dr. McKinney’s academic interests include education at many levels, including residency education, interprofessional education, and simulation. Of these areas, he finds residency education to be the most rewarding because of the opportunity to see residents grow.

Each year PGME recognizes the excellence of many of the faculty and staff involved in our programs who show dedication in program leadership, support of their program and their impact on education and learning in all facets of residency education.

Please join us in congratulating Dr. McKinney for receiving this award and thanking him for his ongoing commitment to postgraduate medical education at UBC.
