Dr. Paul Bragg


Dr. Paul Bragg trained in medicine at the Memorial University of Newfoundland and in anesthesia at the University of Ottawa. He completed a research fellowship in pharmacology at UCSF.

Before serving as the Vice-Dean, Executive, Dr. Bragg served as the Vice-Dean of Postgraduate Medical Education at the University of Ottawa for eight years and was Director for the Residency Training Program for the Department of Anesthesia for five years.

Dr. Bragg has been actively involved as an educator in anesthesia. For example, he created an introductory e-curriculum for medical students that is used across many of Canada’s residency programs. He has been deeply involved with the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada in such roles as a national accreditor, serving on the College’s Assessment committee overseeing the exam processes for all specialties, as well as a national data standards group to guide the creation of the types of data exchange required by universities and programs to support our transition to the Competency by Design paradigm.

As Vice-Dean, Executive, of the uOttawa Faculty of Medicine, a top-ranking Canadian medical school in research, education and innovation, he is credited for the creation of new software platforms to entirely renovate our information management systems for our educational streams in undergraduate and postgraduate medicine as well as in graduate and postdoctoral studies. He has played a strong role in the adoption and implementation an electronic CV platform for all faculty members, and has taken large steps towards the goal of an “enter once” philosophy of information management.

With the recent creation of the Ottawa Shanghai Joint School of Medicine at Renji Hospital, Dr. Bragg has taken on a lead role in the management of this exciting project. It is the first initiative that introduces a thoroughly modern western medical curriculum in China.
