Faculty celebrates staff appreciation week, hands out Awards of Excellence
The uOttawa Faculty of Medicine celebrated Staff Appreciation Week with a series of events held from December 6 to 10, 2021. To kick off the week, the 2021 Faculty of Medicine Support Staff Awards of Excellence were handed out during a special virtual award ceremony on Monday, December 6.
The Faculty of Medicine mourns the passing of emeritus professor Dr. Robert Spasoff, a champion of the School of Epidemiology and Public Health, its learners, and the fields of epidemiology, health policy and community medicine.
We sadly inform the University of Ottawa community of the passing of emeritus professor Dr. Adolfo J. De Bold, an inspiring figure in the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine and renowned around the globe for revolutionizing cardiovascular research.
Through the Faculty of Medicine, the University of Ottawa has become the first Canadian university to endorse the Brocher Declaration, a new set of principles intended to guide policy on short-term global health work, which too often fails to consider the needs of a host community and occasionally causes more harm than good.
