With this year’s election of 10 of our staff, St. Michael’s now has a baker’s dozen of fellows of the Canadian Academy of Health Sciences. CAHS fellows are those who have a history of outstanding performance in the academic health sciences in Canada. Congratulations to the following, who were inducted September 19 at the CAHS annual meeting in Ottawa:

  1. Philip Berger
  2. Paul Dorian
  3. Prabhat Jha
  4. Muhammad Mamdani
  5. Phil Marsden
  6. John Marshall

They join Drs. Arthur Slutsky, Andreas Laupacis and Ori Rotstein, already fellows of the CAHS. “Election to the fellowship in the academy is considered one of the highest honours for those in the field of health sciences,” said Dr. Robert Howard, president and CEO. “The number of staff we have in the fellowship speaks not only to the calibre of their contributions, but also their commitment to advancing the health sciences.”
