Congratulations to Dr. Alim Pardhan on winning the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario 2022 Council award. The Council Award is presented at each meeting of Council to honour outstanding Ontario doctors who have demonstrated excellence and come closest to meeting society's vision of an "ideal physician".

Dr. Pardhan is Associate Professor and Director, Emergency Medicine Residency Program, Department of Medicine. He has worked clinically as an emergency physician at Hamilton Health Sciences and McMaster Children’s Hospital since 2009. He has served as the Program Director of the McMaster Royal College Emergency Medicine program since 2014. Since 2013, he has also been the site lead for the Hamilton General Hospital emergency department, a level-1 trauma centre and tertiary-care teaching site.

“Dr. Pardhan exemplifies the physician you’d want to care for someone you love if they were sick,” says Dr. Jennifer Clara Tang, an emergency physician and assistant clinical professor at the Department of Medicine, in nominating Dr. Pardhan for the Council Award. “The emergency department can be a challenging environment, with high-pressure decisions and patients often presenting on the worst day of their lives. The usual difficulties have been magnified by COVID-19, but Dr. Pardhan has risen to the challenge. Knowing that your physician leader supports and advocates for your safety and patient safety during these dark days has been a balm.”
