On August 31, Dr. Lisa Calder became the CEO of Saegis’ parent, the Canadian Medical Protective Association (CMPA). Dr. Calder also assumes the position of Chair of our Board of Directors at Saegis.
An award winning emergency physician, researcher, and teacher, Dr. Calder is an authentic and collaborative leader who is committed to improving healthcare for Canadian physicians and patients. Since graduating from her emergency medicine residency at the University of Ottawa 15 years ago, Dr. Calder has steadily honed her knowledge and leadership skills—including obtaining a Master of Science in Epidemiology, completing fellowships in patient safety leadership, serving as an award winning associate professor, practising emergency medicine, and joining the CMPA as the director of Medical Care Analytics.
“We are here for our 100,000+ physician members; we will continue to evolve our services and modernize the CMPA so that they feel supported; and will be doing this in collaborative ways,” said Dr. Calder. “I look forward to leading this organization into the future, and I am confident in the deep talent and skills we have at the CMPA to protect the professional integrity of Canadian physicians and promote the safety of medical care.”
The team at Saegis congratulate Dr. Calder and look forward to working more closely together!
