Kevin Schwartzman inducted as a CAHS Fellow

Eleven McGill faculty – seven of which are researchers from the RI-MUHC, were inducted as new Fellows of the Canadian Academy of Health Science (CAHS). A ceremony was held in Ottawa on the evening of September 19th.

Dr. Kevin Schwartzman, RESP program member, is among the recipients. Dr. Schwartzman is Director of the Respiratory Division at McGill University. He is Chair-Elect of the Tuberculosis Section of the International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease. He is a clinician-investigator and award-winning educator (Canadian Association for Medical Education). His research assesses the impact and cost-effectiveness of public health programs combating and preventing tuberculosis, in Canada and abroad.

Induction as a CAHS Fellow is considered one of the highest honours within Canada’s academic community. CAHS Fellows, who serve as unpaid volunteers, are nominated by their institutions and peers and selected in a competitive process based on their internationally recognized leadership, academic performance, scientific creativity and willingness to serve.
