I would like to apprise all members of our community that Dr. Rory McDonagh has stepped down, after a long and productive tenure as Chief of Obstetrics and Gynecology at St. Joseph’s. His tireless work for our department has advanced the care of women and their families tremendously. His dedication to the improvement of quality and patient safety has been exemplary. We wish him continued success in his professional life as he continues his academic career in our specialty.
My very best wishes to everyone for a safe, happy and prosperous New Year!
My goal, as always, continues to be to work to elevate our Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at McMaster University to be among the leading academic programs in Canada.
Our faculty in OB/GYN, Reproductive Biology and Midwifery continue to successfully expand our knowledge in basic science and clinical women’s health. Publications by our faculty in high-impact peer review journals has reached an all-time high in this academic year.
In July of 2010, I was afforded the privilege of becoming the Chair of our Department by the Dean. I was charged with the task of improving our academic productivity and to strive towards excellence in the achievement of our academic mission. My goal continues to be to elevate our Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology to be among the leading academic programs in Canada.
