2018 A.D. Forward Post Graduate Teaching Award

 UBC Department of Surgery


Congratulations to Alex for being he recipient of this year's A.D. Forward Post Graduate Teaching Award.  It is my hope that we can all be reminded of the importance of mentoring our residents, fostering a passion for excellence in patient care, and inspiring their intellectual curiosity.  It is especially poignant in that Dr. Forward, a dedicated teacher and former UBC Surgery Department Head, passed away this week. Our most important legacy is with those that we have been entrusted to mentor and have had the privilege to teach.
