Regional Advisory Committee 5

New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland and Labrador

David Allison, MD, FRCPC
Message from the Chair

I joined the Royal College in 1988 after completing my postgraduate training in public health and preventive medicine at the University of Ottawa. I was elected to the Royal College Council in 2013 and was appointed as the RAC 5 Chair in February 2015.

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.
