Administrative history

The first member of the Faculty of the Department of Anaesthesia was appointed in 1954. From this nucleus the department grew to train students at the undergraduate and postdoctoral levels. It was in the residency program the Department concentrated its efforts, in order to meet the ever present shortage of Anaesthetists in the province. The Department has also maintained an active clinical research program resulting in the introduction of several innovative drugs and techniques. The following have served as head of the department: G.M. Wyant (1954-1975); C.E. Hope (1975-1978); W.B. MacDonald; C.J. Kilduf (1984-1985); S. Neil (acting 1985-1987); P.G. Duncan (1987-1994); R. Yip (1994- ).
