Ottawa Review Course

For the second year in a row, Dr. Sheina Macadam was invited to teach the graduating Plastic Surgery Residents from across Canada at the 2016 Ottawa Chief Resident Review Course, which took place at the end of February in Ottawa, ON. At this 3-day Allergan-sponsored weekend course, Dr. Macadam lectured the senior residents on topics in breast reconstructive surgery, speaking alongside many renowned Canadian physicians and surgeons. The 2016 Ottawa Review Course was a great opportunity for Dr. Macadam to help prepare the next generation of plastic surgeons to be skilled, precise, knowledgeable, and confident physicians as they embark on their careers. Dr. Macadam would also like to thank Allergan for sponsoring the 2016 Ottawa Review Course event, and for continuing to support Canadian residency education.

Happy Holidays from the Division of Plastic Surgery!

Last weekend, the UBC Division of Plastic Surgery held their annual Holiday Skating & Dinner Party at Grouse Mountain. This festive holiday evening is a much-anticipated end-of-year event, and brings together the plastic surgeons, administrative staff, plastic surgery residents and fellows, and their spouses and families. After some chilly skating out in the snow, guests warmed up over a wonderful buffet meal in the Grouse Mountain Observatory.

At this special event, the senior plastic surgeons, including Dr. Sheina Macadam, proudly honour their outstanding plastic surgery trainees. This year, Dr. Max Eder (a breast plastic surgery fellow from Germany who has been operating with and learning from Dr. Macadam and Dr. Lennox), was the recipient of this warm honour. Dr. Eder received the traditional UBC Division of Plastic Surgery tie along with a certificate.

Undeniably, the highlight of the evening was when guests were serenaded by two first-year plastic surgery residents, who courageously belted out the lyrics to a Christmas favourite in front of the whole room.

Dr. Macadam always looks forward to this opportunity to bring trainees, surgeons, staff, and families together during the holiday season. From our office to you, we wish you a very joyful, warm, and safe holiday and a happy new year!
