I am pleased to announce the appointment of Farhan Bhanji, MD, MSc (Ed), as Vice-Dean, Education, Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences (FMHS), McGill University, effective August 1, 2022. Farhan replaces Annette Majnemer, PhD, who recently completed her second term in the position. I thank Prof. Majnemer for her visionary leadership, supporting the Faculty to further advance Interprofessional Education, promote educational innovation, research and scholarship while working to break down silos along the way.
Farhan is an experienced and highly respected teacher and clinician who has been an educational leader at McGill and elsewhere for nearly two decades. A graduate of the medical school at the University of Western Ontario (now Western University), Farhan completed his clinical training in pediatrics, pediatric critical care and pediatric emergency medicine at McGill, as well as training in cardiac critical care, transport and extracorporeal life support at The Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne, Australia. He later obtained an MSc in Health Professions Education from the University of Maastricht.
Farhan is a Professor of Pediatrics, Director of Education at the Steinberg Centre for Simulation and Interactive Learning (SCSIL) and an Associate Member of McGill’s Institute of Health Sciences Education. At the Montreal Children’s Hospital, he is an attending physician in the Pediatric Critical Care unit where he is also a Trauma Team Leader and ECMO physician.
As Vice-Dean, Education, Farhan will lead the Faculty in all educational matters and ensure the continued development of its vision for teaching and learning. He will support the Faculty’s major teaching programs, including nursing, physical and occupational therapy, communication sciences and disorders, medicine and the biomedical science degree programs, as well as the simulation, faculty development and accreditation missions.
