Department of Medicine: Self-Study Report (2018 - 2023)

In 2023, we embarked on a self-study as part of an external review commissioned by the Faculty of Medicine’s Dean’s Office. The external review is a wonderful opportunity to take stock of where we are, where we’d like to be, and to garner input on how to get there.

I invite you to read the self-study reports to learn more about the achievements, successes and challenges we’ve faced as a department over the last five years.
