OTTAWA, April 26, 2014 /CNW/ - Dr. Sarah Mary McIsaac was recognized today for her outstanding leadership skills, as the 2014 recipient of the Sandra Banner Student Award for Leadership. The award was presented to Dr. McIsaac by Dr. Roger Strasser, Dean of the Northern Ontario School of Medicine, during the CaRMS Forum – Interactive session at the Canadian Conference on Medical Education (CCME) on April 26, 2014 in Ottawa.
Dr. McIsaac, who is currently in her fourth year of residency in the combined Anesthesiology program at the University of Ottawa and the Northern Ontario School of Medicine, has a strong academic background and holds many local and national leadership roles.
"I am honoured to be the 2014 recipient of the Sandra Banner Student Award for Leadership," said Dr. McIsaac. "This prestigious award will allow me to continue to participate in leadership development courses that help to inspire innovation in health care education."
The Canadian Resident Matching Service (CaRMS) Board of Directors launched the Sandra Banner Student Award for Leadership in 2013 with the aim of encouraging the development of future leaders in medicine. The award is accompanied by up to $5,000 in leadership development funding.
Dr. McIsaac intends to use the award funding to pursue the formal educational course "Leading Innovations and Health Care and Education", delivered by the Harvard Macy Institute. The course will give her the knowledge and skill sets to continue developing the e-learning platform of NOSM's Anesthesiology postgraduate training program. It will also broaden her foundation on how to successfully implement organizational health care change as it pertains to patient safety and well-being, as well as allow her to make international contacts with like-minded individuals who will play an influential role in medical education in the future.
Sister Elizabeth Davis, a member of the CaRMS Awards Committee recognized for her outstanding leadership qualities, said the response to the award has been inspiring: "We received applications from medical students and residents across the country and each submission demonstrated the unbelievable talent, commitment and ambition of this generation of medical learners. The content of the submissions reflects both a level of understanding of the broader issues which are fundamental to good health for persons and for communities and a level of leadership which will help transform the Canadian health system in the years to come."
Applications for the 2015 Sandra Banner Student Award for Leadership will be accepted starting in October 2014. The closing date for receipt of completed applications is December 15, 2014. For information on how to apply, please visit carms.ca/en/sbsal.

With microservices, SOA and distributed architectures becoming more popular, it is becoming increasingly harder to keep track of where time is spent in a distributed application when trying to diagnose performance problems. Distributed tracing systems attempt to address this problem by following application requests across service boundaries, persisting metadata along the way that provide context for fine-grained performance monitoring.
