We had an incredible evening on April 26, 2018 as we recognized members of our medical community for their outstanding accomplishments and commitment to our profession.

Dr. Mike Allard MSc'78, MD'81, President of the UBC Medical Alumni Association (MAA), welcomed guests who included MAA members, alumni, family members, and UBC staff and highlighted the successes of the MAA in the past year, notably our events at the distributed sites and aligning the activities of the MAA with the Faculty of Medicine. Dr. Gurdeep Parhar MedRes’93, Executive Associate Dean of the Faculty of Medicine, reviewed the Faculty's Strategic Plan and the historic $24 million gift from Dr. Edward Leong to the Faculty of Medicine to expand research aimed at helping people live longer and enjoy a better quality of life in their later years.

A bittersweet moment came when Dr. Allard gave heartfelt appreciation for our 5 departing MAA Board Members (Drs Jack Burak BSc'72, MD'76, Ian Courtice MD’84, Harvey Lui BSc'83, MD'86, Donald MacRitchie BSc’68, MD’70, and Chris Uy MD’14) for their many years of service. During the AGM’s formal progam, we were pleased to welcome 3 new Board Members (Drs Sara Waters MD’09, Maryam Zeineddin BSc’98, MD’03, and Jan Christilaw MHSc’03) and look forward to working with them over the next year!

Dr. Hamed Umedaly MD’86, President-Elect, was the emcee for our Awards Ceremony portion of the evening where we had the honour to award five medical alumni with the Wallace Wilson Leadership Award (Dr. Gurdev Gill MD’57 DSc’96 and Dr. James Watt BSc’62, MD’67), Silver Anniversary Award (Dr. Azaria Marthyman MD’92), and alumni UBC 100 Alumni Builder Awards (Dr. David Hardwick MD’57, LLD’01 and Dr. Beverley Tamboline BA’53, MD'60). The award recipients’ careers and achievements inspired us all to be as selfless and engaging towards the medical community and society as they have throughout their lives.

We encourage you to visit this page in the near future for photos from the event. We can’t wait for 2019 to celebrate another great year for the MAA and recognize our medical alumni!
