Division Head Message

Leadership, innovation and hard work

At the heart of our division is a varied group of professionals who are committed to advancing the care of people with hematological disorders through leadership, innovation and hard work.

Our field is changing rapidly, spurred by exceptional research. In fact, in some areas, advances are being realized almost daily. As one of the most research-intensive divisions of hematology in Canada, our work is reflected in those advances.

Residents choose to train here because of our willingness and ability to tailor their residency program to their specific interests. Division members choose to build their careers here because of our collaborative environment, commitment to excellence and East Coast lifestyle.

If you are a medical student or resident considering hematology as a career choice or you’d like to learn more about the subspecialty through an elective, I encourage you to peruse our website and then contact us to learn more. You will be welcomed as part of our team from the start.
