In accordance with the Senate document governing the appointment of heads of clinical/academic departments that was approved on March 26, 2009, a joint headship search committee for the Department of Family Medicine has been established. The role of the committee is to provide advice to the Provost and Vice-Principal (Academic) of Queen’s University and to the Board Chairs of the participating hospitals on the present state and future prospects of the department, and to make a recommendation on its future leadership. 

    The composition of the committee is as follows:

    In applying the process, the committee is consulting widely, through correspondence, with members of the department’s faculty and staff, students, residents, members of the teaching hospitals, and other members of the university and health sciences communities, as appropriate.

    We invite you to submit your comments on the present state and future prospects of the Department of Family Medicine, as well as the names of possible candidates for the headship and the reasons for supporting each nominee. Submissions may be made to the co-chairs via Microsoft Forms or email to qhsstaffing@queensu.ca.  

    While submissions will be accepted throughout the search process, it will be advantageous for the committee to have them early on. Responses received will remain confidential and will be shared only with the members of the review committee. Anonymous submissions will not be considered; however, names, letterhead/e-mail header, and/or signature block of those who respond will be masked on the copy that is circulated to committee members.
