Canada Chapter College Awards

Alberta Chapter Receives the 2024 John Tooker Evergreen Award

The John Tooker Evergreen Awards Program provides recognition and visibility to chapters that have successfully implemented programs to increase membership, improve communication, encourage member involvement, enhance diversity, foster careers in internal medicine or improve chapter management. Our Chapter received the 2024 John Tooker Evergreen Award for the initiative, Point-of-Care Ultrasound Webinar Series

Point-of-Care Ultrasound Webinar Series

The point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) webinar series was created to increase the availability of quality, desired, educational offerings for our Chapter. A POCUS Education Council was appointed to guide this work, which in-turn provided unique leadership opportunities for diverse early career physicians and trainees. The webinars occurred monthly to address diverse aspects of POCUS and bring in internationally known speakers to the forum. It has also helped the province unite in preparation for our merger with Manitoba and Saskatchewan, at which time, POCUS and educational experts in those provinces will be invited to join in this work.

2023 Chapter Excellence Award

We would like to extend a special thanks to those chapter members who assisted us in all of these endeavors! For their hard work and dedication, we received these awards.
