 Dr. Jayna Holroyd-Leduc, Department Head, Department of Medicine

The department as a collective once again made significant contributions across the CARE (clinical/quality; administration/leadership; research/scholarship; education/teaching) pillars in 2023. We began to realize successes in many of the priority areas within the DOM Strategic Plan. Several of these accomplishments are highlighted in the 2023 DOM annual report. I look forward to seeing what new discoveries, innovations, and practice changes department members accomplish together in 2024.

As we start a new year, my hope for all department members is that you continue to find moments of joy within the important work you do every day. Although there are many challenges facing the healthcare system, together we can continue to improve the health of Albertans and Canadians.
