CAEP Emergency Physician of the Year – Dr. David Lewis

A huge congratulations goes out to our very own Dr. David Lewis who is one of the recipients of 2020’s CAEP Emergency Physician of the Year – Urban! This is an annual award recognizing excellence in the specialty of emergency medicine and is awarded to a physician who has made outstanding contributions to the field in a number of areas including patient care, community service, healthcare administration and CAEP activities.

Dr. Lewis is an integral part of our emergency department as Assistant Clinical Departmental Head, Ultrasound Program Director, Informatics Lead and as a senior clinician. He has been actively involved with CAEP as a member of the planning committee, ultrasound committee and as Scientific Co-chair. Dr. Lewis continues to contribute to research as an editor with CJEM and as an active contributor to local projects. Last year he co-founded the PoCUS Fellowship program with the intentions of promoting the capabilities of PoCUS, and training fellows who will then carry on this knowledge in administering their own programs. Clinically, he is a seasoned member of the department with a wealth of experience and one committed to excellent patient care.

It comes as no surprise that Dr. Lewis has been awarded this honour – congratulations and SJRHEM is so happy to call you our own!
