It is with great enthusiasm that we welcome Dr. David Wood as the new Head of the Division of Cardiology at Vancouver General Hospital. He comes with a wealth of leadership and research experience, and is also the physician lead of the new Centre for Cardiovascular Innovation –Centre d’Innovation Cardiovasculaire (CCI-CIC). He follows the reign of Dr. Ken Gin, who tirelessly served 10 years as the Program Director of the UBC Cardiology Program before serving another 10 years as the Division Head of Cardiology at Vancouver General Hospital. We thank Dr. Gin for his dedication and hard work in strengthening our program over the years, and look forward to the accomplishments that will undoubtedly come under Dr. Wood’s leadership.
