Strategic Planning Sessions
A message from Dr. Gary Redekop – Department Head – August 2021

As valued members of the UBC Department of Surgery, I would like to invite and encourage you to participate in our strategic planning process, which will take place in September. Faculty input from across the province, and which is representative of the diversity of our department, is critical to the success of our goal, which is to map out our vision and to set priorities and goals for the next five years.

We will have four separate theme sessions – focusing on Engagement, Research, Education, and our global surgery initiative, the Branch for International Surgical Care. In order to maximize attendance, for the Engagement, Research, and Education themes, there will be two dates. All of the sessions will be dynamic and interactive. There will be faculty facilitators to guide the discussions, but the most important factor that will determine the value of the strategic plan is your individual and collective participation and contributions.

Because this is such an important series of events for the Department of Surgery, and to recognize the importance of our faculty member’s time and input, we will compensate all Clinical Faculty at the rate of $90 per hour for each session attended.

Details about the sessions are below. You are encouraged to register at least one week prior to the session. Please make every effort to attend. I look forward to hearing from you!

Yours sincerely,

Gary Redekop
