Message from the Chair

As a member of the Royal College practicing in Montreal, Quebec, I am pleased to welcome you as the Chair of your Regional Advisory Committee (RAC 4).

I am a graduate of McGill University and completed residency in Otolaryngology and Head and Neck Surgery at McGill University teaching hospitals followed by a fellowship in Laryngology at Vanderbilt University (Nashville, Tennessee) and a Master in Health Administration at the University of Montreal. I have been a Fellow of the Royal College since 1987 and was elected to the Royal College Council in 2010. I am currently also Chair of the Financial Reporting and Risk Oversight Committee of Council.

Regional Advisory Committees:

  • identify regional issues relevant to the practice of specialty medicine, medical education, and health policy for action by the Royal College
  • promote effective communication with regional members
  • facilitate regional members’ ability to share their perspectives, strategies or solutions within areas of common interest
  • support the continuing professional development of members through collaboration with regional CPD educators and other regional partner organizations
  • identify and support the development of regional members with the experience, skills and expertise to serve in various volunteer roles within the Royal College

Each RAC serves an important role in developing strategies to engage all members in our region in a dialogue concerning issues that are important to the profession and the core mission of the Royal College. We value your involvement and participation in contributing your perspectives and experiences on a wide range of issues or initiatives.

The RAC is one way you can become more involved in the Royal College and contribute to enhancing the practice of specialty medicine.

If you have any questions or issues that you would like to raise, you can contact me at or Kora McNulty (Administrative Coordinator, Membership Services) at or 1-800-668-3740 ext. 173. , RAC Chair email inboxes are monitored by Royal College staff,
