First Cohort of AMS Phoenix Fellows Announced

Associated Medical Services (AMS) is pleased to announce the winners of the 2012 AMS Phoenix Fellowship competition.

The 2012 AMS Phoenix Fellowship is a key cornerstone of the AMS Phoenix Project. Launched in June 2011, the AMS Phoenix Project is based on the premise that health professionals provide the best care when they are able to balance human compassion and technical expertise. Over the next few years, AMS will act as a catalyst for change by making strategic investments and working with educators, health professionals, workplaces and other partners to better understand what is needed to support this balance. The AMS Phoenix Fellows will act as champions providing leadership and building capacity to help create more humane and supportive teaching and practice environments.

The 2012 AMS Phoenix Fellows come from six universities across Ontario including McMaster University, Northern Ontario School of Medicine, Queen’s University, University of Toronto, University of Ottawa and Western University.

Through their work, the cohort of Fellows will help build a network of supporters within their regions to advance humane, compassionate, person-centred care and to understand and address the hidden curricula that can work against such care, said AMS Phoenix Project Lead, Dr. Brian Hodges.

The next round of applications for the 2013 AMS Phoenix Fellowship will be available online in January 2013.
