Melissa Forgie: Day one as Undergrad Dean

Dr. Melissa Forgie, with the Division of Hematology, was all smiles as usual as she began her new role as Associate Dean of Undergraduate Medical Education yesterday. Despite the chaos of unpacked boxes and the mile long list of to-do’s, she was poised and enthusiastic about the challenges that this new position presents.

When asked what this day meant to her, she responded,¬†“It is truly an honour and privilege¬†to be serving in this role for our future physicians. I am delighted to be able to give back to the very medical school, which granted me an MD. I look forward to the continued significant contributions the Department of Medicine and its members make, to the teaching of our students”.

The Department congratulates Dr. Forgie on yet another incredible achievement and wishes her all the best in this new role!
