Congratulations to Dr. Ashraf Fayad, PHE Fellowship Director and to Dr. Viren Naik, Vice Chair of Education! They have each been chosen to receive 2013 CAS Membership Honors.
Dr. Ashraf Fayad will receive the 2013 Clinical Practitioner Award. This award is a testament to the dedication and enthusiasm exhibited by Dr. Fayad in his clinical practice. His expertise in peri-operative medicine, vascular anesthesia and echocardiography are readily shared with colleagues and students. Dr. Fayad has always extended himself when complex cases arise and his willingness to help others is exemplary.
Dr. Viren Naik will receive the 2013 Clinical Teacher Award. This is a fitting award for Dr. Naik, given his passion for medical education. Dr. Naik is an excellent teacher and clinician, and a strong proponent of mentorship. His work in Simulation and education research has reached the national and international stage. Many of us would agree that he is a ‘teacher of teachers’ and his work will surely influence the up and comers in our profession.
Drs Fayad and Naik will be awarded at the annual CAS meeting in Calgary, June 2013.
