I am delighted to announce the appointment of Dr. Clarissa Wallace as Assistant Dean, Vancouver Fraser, effective November 16, 2015 for a three-year term.
Dr. Wallace is a clinical endocrinologist in New Westminster, and divides her time between her private practice and the clinical teaching units and endocrinology consultation service at the Royal Columbian Hospital. She is also a Clinical Assistant Professor in the Department of Medicine. Dr. Wallace is interested in medical education at all levels from undergraduate studies through residency training to family practice and endocrinology. She has served on the Royal College Examination Board and recently was a Clinician Advisor in MD Undergraduate Program at the Royal Columbian Hospital.
In this new position, Dr. Wallace will provide specific operational leadership for MD undergraduate education in the Vancouver Fraser Medical Program (VFMP), ensuring the delivery of a high quality educational experience across all four years of the curriculum through collaboration with course clerkship directors and with education leaders at all distributed sites. Please join me in welcoming Dr. Wallace to her new role.
I would also like to take this opportunity to extend my sincere thanks to Dr. Jill McEwen, who completes her term as Assistant Dean, Fraser on October 30, 2015. During the past three years, Dr. McEwen has been dedicated and energetic in her role, and has supported several important tasks during her tenure. We wish her the very best in her accomplished career.
