As you are aware, over the last few months a diligent search process was carried out in order to fill the position of Postgraduate Education Program (PGE) Director in the UBC Department of Psychiatry. Although the position received a great deal of interest, unfortunately the search did not result in identifying an ideal candidate for this role.
In light of this, and in order to ensure that the Program continues to function efficiently, we have appointed Dr. Irfan Khanbhai as the interim Program Director for a further two-year term, from January 1, 2021 to December 31, 2022.
On behalf of the Department, we express our sincerest thanks to Dr. Khanbhai, whose exceptional support and leadership to the PGE Program have been invaluable, especially given the many adjustments and uncertainties we have faced this past year.
Dr. Lakshmi N. Yatham, Professor and Head, UBC Department of Psychiatry
