Faculty of Medicine’s Quick Poll: Latest Results

uOttawa Faculty of Medicine’s building.

The inaugural Quick Poll survey, sent July 2018, asked our stakeholders two questions:

Q1: Data show students of lower socioeconomic status are disadvantaged when it comes to applying for medical school. How important is it to you that the MD program develops a pipeline program for students of lower socioeconomic status?

Q2: Please rank priorities for the next Dean of Medicine.

The results were as follows:

Q1: Majority voted “Very important” to develop a pipeline program.

This feedback was useful for our medical school, and the Faculty is currently working on implementing such a program.

Q2: Top priority was “Faculty engagement”.

The Faculty of Medicine has made internal faculty engagement a priority (with, for example, its implicit aspects of recognition, wellness, diversity and inclusion, among others). Led by the Faculty Experience Team (FET), made up of a grassroots member from each of your departments, we have been identifying engagement priorities, and improving communications from leadership. This summer the Executive Leadership Team approved wellness/burnout and recognition as the top two initial priorities for the FET. Look out for another Engagement Progress Report in the coming months.
