I am pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Doug Coyle as the Interim Director of the School of Epidemiology, Public Health and Preventive Medicine (SEPHPM) as of September 1, 2016.
Dr. Coyle replaces Dr. Julian Little, whom we thank sincerely for his leadership as Chair of the Department of Epidemiology and Community Medicine from July 2006 to December 2014, and Director upon its transition into SEPHPM in January 2015.
Dr. Coyle is a full professor at SEPHPM, where since 1996 he has been an active teacher and graduate student supervisor. He has served as its Director of Graduate Studies, and is a leading researcher in the field of health economics with over 180 peer-reviewed articles. He is a member of a number of provincial- and national-level advisory committees and has guided many provincial, national and international agencies in reimbursement decisions relating to health care interventions.
Please join me in congratulating Dr. Coyle on his appointment to the role of Interim Director, SEPHPM.
