Canadian Fellowship Grant Program
Dr. Dan O’Connell, Edmonton, AB
Chair, Canadian Fellowship Committee
I am pleased to announce the recipients of the 2016 Fellowship grants. From the many excellent applicants, Dr. Blair Williams from Dalhousie University and Dr. Han Zhang from the University of Alberta have been chosen as the award recipients.
Dr. Williams is doing the Dalhousie Fellowship in Head and Neck Oncology/Microvascular Reconstruction and Dr. Zhang is pursuing the same at the University of Toronto. We look forward to hearing from them at the annual Canadian Society of Otolaryngology Head & Neck Surgery annual meeting upon completion of their years. Thank you to all who reviewed their applications.
The Society and the Fund would like to acknowledge the generous support given to this program by Takeda Canada and Ethicon Surgical Care (Div. of Johnson & Johnson).
