Dr. Cory Baillie is a rheumatologist based in Winnipeg and current President and Chair of The Journal of Rheumatology. He is also a former President of Doctors Manitoba and of the Canadian Rheumatology Association.
Why do you want to be CMA President?
This is a critical time for Canadian health care. The public, government and physicians all understand our current situation is untenable. I plan to leverage my provincial and national level medical leadership, governance and advocacy experience to work towards the CMA vision of a vibrant profession and a healthy population.
What do you hope to achieve if you become CMA President?
CMA advocacy has highlighted the need for system change. A national human resource strategy, physician health and wellness, the crisis in primary care, pan-Canadian licensure, improving team-based care, a national medical record, long term care reform. All of these issues would have the potential to be addressed during my term.
