Daniel Dubois received his undergraduate medical degree from the University of Manitoba. His Anesthesiology residency training was completed in a combined program between the University of Ottawa and Northern Ontario School of Medicine. In 2014 he undertook a novel fellowship training program in Perioperative Medicine at the University of Manitoba. His training included a focus on postoperative care of high risk patients, echocardiography and critical care.
Since returning to Ottawa in 2015 he has taken on the role of Associate Program Director and Competence by Design (CBD) lead for the University of Ottawa Anesthesiology Residency training program. The University of Ottawa Anesthesiology post-graduate program has been granted special permission from the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC) to pilot a CBD project two years ahead of the national roll-out. With his oversight the program has created a robust assessment program, faculty development plan, and has successfully incorporated the 2015 CanMEDS competency framework throughout all aspects of training. He is actively involved with the Royal College Sub Specialty Committee for Anesthesiology that is tasked with the planning and implementation of CBD for the specialty on a national level. Locally he is working with the University of Ottawa post-graduate medical education (PGME) committee to share his knowledge and experience with CBD to develop educational platforms and assessment tools, which can be implemented throughout all specialties. He was recognized in 2017 with a Certificate of Merit, by the Canadian Association of Medical Educators and in 2018 with the CAS John Bradley Young Educator award for his work within and outside his University.
