Congratulations to Patricia (Pat) McNama on her retirement after 41 years at UHN! Dr. McNama joined the staff at Toronto General in 1980 after completing medical school and an anesthesia speciality at the University of Toronto. During her career, she has held numerous leadership roles and is the recipient of two teaching awards: the Award for Excellence in Undergraduate teaching (2010) and the John Bradley Award for Excellence in Teaching (2018). She is a highly respected clinician whose exemplary patient-focused care has inspired medical students, anesthesia trainees, fellows and colleagues for generations.
