Dr. John Cairns, MD’68 – 2022 alumni UBC Builder Award Recipient

Dr. John Cairns was Dean of UBC’s Faculty of Medicine from 1996 to 2003. He led efforts, in conjunction with UBC and two provincial governments, to conceptualize, secure the funding for, and establish university partnerships to enable the doubling of medical student enrollment centered at UBC but distributed throughout the province.

In 2020, Dr. Cairns co-authored Dreamers, Skeptics, and Healers, outlining the first 70 years of the faculty of medicine. The book features numerous alumni and the Medical Student & Alumni Centre, and has brought together alumni to celebrate the Faculty’s history.
