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.

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."

In his Day 3 Keynote at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, a Solutions Marketing Manager at Nutanix, will explore t...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
