Cardiac Staff Matters 18/07/16

1. On July 6th the Section of Cardiology hosted a Welcome party welcoming Dr. Justin Cloutier, Dr. Scott Donald and Dr. Christopher Lee into our Cardiology Residency Training Program. Everyone enjoyed the evening starting with a BBQ followed by a night of baseball at Provencher Park. A great time was had by all!

2. Dr. Rakesh Arora has been offered an appointment to the Editorial Board of The Journal of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery! This honour recognizes Dr. Arora’s contributions as a reviewer for this publication. An initial and renewable 3-year term began on July 1, 2016. Congratulations, Dr. Arora!

3. A touch of humour: Due to a job transfer, Brian moved from his hometown to New York City. Being that he had a very comprehensive health history, he brought along all of his medical paperwork, when it came time for his first check up with his new Doctor. After browsing through the extensive medical history, the Doctor stared at Brian for a few moments and said, “Well there’s one thing I can say for certain, you sure look better in person than you do on paper!”
