Board Election 2021: Peri-Operative Candidates

Dr. Rohit Bansal, PGY 1, Orthopedic Surgery

My Reason

I have recently joined as an IMG resident and enthusiastically interacted with several colleagues. The diversity of the group and passionate opinions have left me with a revitalised perspective of our community.

This profound impression inspired me to contest for Board and establish an enduring commitment to our welfare and interests.

My Plan

I am curious to understand the ne and help enhance, promote, and safeguard interests and welfare of our community.

I want to work with you to address the most crucial issues needing attention and focus, especially on calls and welfare.

I strive to be articulate and will voice your concerns.

My Experience

Diverse work experience from Vancouver, Calgary, Winnipeg, and India for 15 years, in multi-cultural reputed healthcare organisations. Have been associated very closely with the resident groups and have promoted staff and patient welfare.

I believe in fairness and will courageously stand up for your right.

Your vote counts

I look forward to walking through this journey with each one of you and hope you can see me as someone you can relate to and trust to represent your voice with utmost conviction.

I hope you grant me the privilege to be your representative for PARIM.

Dr. Sabrina Lee, PGY 4, Obstetrics & Gynecology

Hi! I’m Sabrina, one of the R4s in the OBGYN program. Originally from Québec and having done medical school in Ottawa, I bring a variety of perspectives to the way I approach an issue. Whether through starting something from the ground up (uOttawa Black Medical Student Association) or participating in existing structures (PARIM Contract Subcommittee, Medical Students For Choice), I am someone who finds drive in advocating for equity and efficiency within systems. 

Having been a resident here since 2017, I have been able to connect with countless fellow residents (often on their obstetrics rotation!) and witness several events unfold within our institution over the years. I believe my past leadership roles and considerable experience working in Winnipeg will help inform my positions within this Board. As a Peri-Operative Candidate, I plan to represent those of us training in operative and intensive care settings, and reflect the unique challenges we face during these challenging programs. 

I have been inspired by how PARIM has advocated for us throughout the pandemic, contract negotiations and in day-to-day events with our programs and employer. From this, I would be happy to continue working with this organization fuelled by our colleagues who passionately defend our interests and work towards our wellness during this wild time we call residency. 

Thank you for taking the time to vote!
