MSA elections - this affects you directly
Why should you run for a position on the MSA executive committee?
So it’s 2022 and you are an academic physician at a prestigious university, working in one of the biggest and most complex hospital in Canada. COVID is here, making a mess of things, but the hospital is launching a $200M EMR, re-engineering the ER at HGH to the tune of $20M, rebuilding the WLMH beginning now, and planning a $1B rebuild of the Juravinski Hospital… all while taking care of patients. It’s exciting times. It’s a time to be proud to be working at HHS.
And it has never been more important for doctors at this hospital to participate in the changes that are coming. These are generational changes that we have a chance to be a part of. The MSA has been busy cementing a relationship with the leadership of the hospital over the years – a relationship built on trust and respect. We have an executive leadership team at the hospital that is looking to partner with doctors. Over the next year, we need to expand the MSA’s work and influence in this hospital, to develop the capacity to execute projects that make a difference, and to help lead the way through. We need to look after our individual patients well, to participate in the running of the sites where we work, and to help build and maintain the structure that supports our practices—HHS itself.
The upcoming elections provide a way for us to get together to do this work. The MSA exec offers the opportunity for us to take on leadership roles, to make a difference and to do meaningful work together. Consider running for the exec. A diverse group of Members-at-large are needed from each site. We look forward to a vibrant and productive upcoming year at the MSA Exec.
