I practice critical care medicine at the London Health Sciences Centre in London, Ontario. I am Professor in the Department of Medicine, Chair/Chief of Critical Care Western (Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry, Western University) and Medical Director of Critical Care at LHSC.

I graduated from The University of Toronto Medical School (1984), and became a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada in Internal Medicine (1987).  I completed a Critical Care Fellowship at the University of Western Ontario (1990).

I practice critical care medicine at the London Health Sciences Centre in London, Ontario. I am Professor in the Department of Medicine, Chair/Chief of Critical Care Western (Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry, Western University) and Medical Director of Critical Care at LHSC.

I participate actively in multidisciplinary research in the critically ill.  I was a leader of a health services collaborative (the Critical Care Research Network, CCR-Net) that engaged community and teaching hospitals from across Canada in measurement and quality improvement. I am an active member of the Canadian Critical Care Trials Group as an investigator and collaborator in numerous large clinical studies. As well, I maintain a basic science laboratory with expertise in small animal models to study cardiovascular and microcirculatory function in sepsis and hemorrhagic shock.

Other health services activities related to critical care include the Ontario Provincial Critical Care Transformation Project (Steering Committee and Expert Panel member) and principal investigator for the Canadian Critical Care Vital Signs Scorecard project. I am a faculty member and current chair of the Canadian Collaborative for Patient Safety in the ICU, which is a partner to the ‘Safer Healthcare Now’ campaign. I recently assumed the position of President of the Canadian Critical Care Society.

My first sailboat was a 36’ Beneteau named Critical. Our current boat is an S2 7.9(m) called I Sea U. I am always happy to discuss my professional life further on deck or on a ski lift!
