Dr. Shayne Reitmeier, PGY1, Family Medicine Rural
Dear Colleagues,
I am thrilled to be elected as the Associate Member on the 2017/2018 College of Physicians and Surgeons of Manitoba Council! My interest in committee work started with United Way Winnipeg’s Grant Committee. I held this position for 7 years, and gained experience working collaboratively to assess funding applications while developing standards for the program. At the University of Manitoba, I joined the Faculty of Health Sciences Advisory Committee on Diversity, which was established to act as the main discussion and advisory body of the College in relation to Diversity and Inclusion. In addition to this committee, I continue to provide representation on a national level through the Canadian Medical Learners for Sexual and Gender Diversity Executive Committee. With this initiative, medical learners across the country work to advocate for a standard of education relating to the unique care needs of sexual and gender minorities. Finally, I am pleased to have recently joined PARIM’s 2017/2018 Board of Directors as the elected Rural Family Medicine representative.

Thank you for trusting me to take on this incredible opportunity to provide effective representation for all Associate Members, including Residents, Medical students and Physician Assistants.
