Canadian Academy of Health Sciences
50 new Fellows were inducted to the Academy in 2014. The distinctive competencies of these distinguished individuals have led to accomplishments and academic service to the full breadth of academic health sciences that is truly remarkable. The Induction Ceremony, led this year by Linda Rabeneck and Louise Potvin, celebrated their remarkable personal contributions, which included the induction of one of our own, Dr. William Foulkes.
Departmental Acknowledgement: Constantin Polychronakos
***To all the members of the Department of Pediatrics on behalf of Dr. Michael Shevell***
This week’s Departmental Acknowledgment goes to Constantin Polychronakos on the stupendous occasion of his election to the Royal Society of Canada.
Established in 1882 by an Act of the Canadian Parliament, the Society combines the Academies of Arts, Humanities and Sciences of Canada and is the senior national pre-eminent collegium of distinguished scientists, scholars and artists. Its efforts are directed at promoting learning and research, scholarly accomplishment, mentoring future scholars and artists, recognizing excellence and advising governments, non-governmental organizations and the Canadian public on matters of general interest to our collective society.
Constantin is currently a Professor (with tenure) in the Department of Pediatrics at McGill University. He served for fifteen years as Director of our Division of Pediatric Endocrinology. As a Division Director, he ably led his Division to prominence in all domains of our academic mission; clinical service, outreach, education and research (basic and clinical). As Chair, I can attest to Constantin’s selfless and steady attention to the continued professional development of his Division members and peers while he was Division Director . He has recently replaced his leadership role as Division Director by taking an even more substantial position in our hospital-based research efforts as the leader for the Child Health and Human Development Program of the MUHC-RI.
