System Sustainability news: 6F goes paperless, search committee updates and the College of Medicine appreciation event


RGH paperless lab initiative

Please be advised that following the success of 5E moving to a paperless lab system almost one year ago, 6F has chosen to follow suit in the spirit of standardization. Beginning July 5, 2016, 6F will initiate a paperless lab system. Lab results will be accessible via SCM excluding provincial reports which will continue to come in paper form. In the event that paper copies of lab results are required this can be provided upon request.

Search committee updates

Search Committee meetings and Interviews are planned for the heads of the Departments of Medicine and Surgery. Dr. Carson is reviewing the situations in Laboratory Medicine and in Family Medicine.

College of Medicine appreciation event

The College of Medicine hosted an appreciation evening on Monday, June 20, 2016 at the Queensbury Convention Centre in Regina to recognize and thank those who contribute to medical education in Regina. Faculty members, standardized patients, sensitive exam patients, non-physician teachers, library staff, simulation center staff, nurse coordinators, and our administrative staff were all invited to attend. The event was also an opportunity to congratulate and provide best wishes to our medical learners who are progressing to the next stages of their careers as they move on to Residency, Fellowship or clinical practice.

The evening also provided a chance to recognize the Ministry of Health, Rural and Remote Health, and Advanced Education for their ongoing support of the College of Medicine in Saskatchewan.

A special recognition was expressed to Dr. Lawrence Clein who is formally retiring from his academic teaching role. Upon retirement from his clinical practice, Dr. Clein assumed an increased role in teaching within the Regina Campus. Given his varied clinical background he was a resource to the College of Medicine and our students as he imparted knowledge in palliative care and surgery, but also many other areas of medicine.
