Ori's Move to St. Mike's

Ori Rotstein, St. Michael’s Hospital
Ori Rotstein was appointed Surgeon-in-Chief at St. Michael's Hospital four years ago with a mandate to expand the academic profile of their surgery department. He was attracted by the hospital's commitment to its academic mission and the prospect of working at a new research institute with a particular focus on critical care and trauma research. Chief of Medicine Bob Highland had recruited 40 physicians to develop an excellent teaching department. There had been many departures in surgery, so there was room to recruit.

The relationship between surgeons and the pharmaceutical and device industries is under attack.
$7M for 12 days work was the highest of over 200 disclosures of physician remuneration listed on the website of the Zimmer Orthopedic Instrument Company.
A rising shortage in the surgical workforce is creating a crisis in emergency care.
Fayez Quereshy's two years at the Rotman School of Management were "a terrific experience that differed by 180 degrees" from his prior education.
A fantastic cohort of new residents has beaten the competition.
John Bohnen has moved on to become Vice Dean, Clinical Affairs, for the Faculty of Medicine.
