Under Dr. Richard Reznick's leadership, the Faculty of Health Sciences has worked to intensify research activities and develop new models of teaching and training.

Over the past five years, the Faculty of Health Sciences has attracted some of the brightest students in Canada and actively recruited outstanding faculty. Many of the new faculty were recruited via a special initiative, which has brought a cadre of clinician scientists to Queen’s. 

The faculty has worked hard on its goals of intensifying research and developing new models of teaching and training. In the past few years, new programs such as the multidisciplinary Master of Science in Healthcare Quality, a combined MD/PhD program, a functional anatomy boot camp, the Queen’s University Clinician Investigator Program, and the Queen’s University Accelerated Route to Medical School (QuARMS) have been initiated.

Dr. Reznick, a professor in the Department of Surgery, completed his medical degree at McGill University and later graduated from the general-surgery training program at the University of Toronto. He completed a master of education degree at Southern Illinois University then did a fellowship in colorectal surgery at the University of Texas in Houston.

The Faculty of Health Sciences at Queen’s University boasts a unique structure that encompasses the schools of MedicineNursing and Rehabilitation Therapy. The collaborative culture fostered by this structure is a key contributor to the individual successes of the three schools, and to the collective success of the faculty. The unified strategic direction of the faculty encompasses targeted and collaborative research, new models of inter-professional education and training, and patient-centred care.
