Leadership Update

Dear Colleagues,

I am pleased to share the following two leadership updates:

Dr. Bruce Forster’s appointment as Head, Department of Radiology, has been extended until June 30, 2021.

Dr. Forster has been the Head of the Department since July 1, 2010, providing remarkable leadership to faculty, staff and learners during this time, while advancing the Department’s teaching and research programs. I am pleased that he will continue in this role as we work towards the launch of a search for his successor in 2020.

Dr. Donald Brooks’ appointment as Interim Head, Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine has been extended, effective to March 31, 2020.

Dr. Brooks began the interim position in December 2018, and I am grateful for the leadership and support he has provided to the Department. The search for a new head for the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine is ongoing.

I would like to thank Dr. Forster and Dr. Brooks for their continued leadership and support during the coming year.
