Vancouver Island Chapter Presents
June 18, 2015
To improve how Island Health provides care and supports community heath and care, Island Health is transitioning from a portfolio based leadership structure to a geographic-based leadership structure with four geographic regions, combined with island-wide services. Join Dr. Taj Baidwan, Executive Vice President & Chief Medical Officer of Island Health for his insights into transformational change. In this presentation Dr. Baidwan discusses key elements of this transformational change, speaks to his leadership role in redesigning the organizational structure at Island Health, and describes the role of the LEADS framework in facilitating systems change in the new structures.
In 2011, Dr. Baidwan was appointed as Island Health’s Executive Medical Director, for Medical Affairs and since March 2013 has served as Acting Executive Vice-President and Chief Medical Officer, taking the permanent role in November 2013. In addition to his work at Island Health, he was Program Director for the International Medical Graduate Program at the University of British Columbia from 2011 to 2013, based at St. Paul's Hospital, Vancouver; this was the period during which the IMG program was under expansion and grew to a distributed program across a number of sites. Dr. Baidwan continues to be active at the Provincial level on numerous committees and his particular areas of interest are leadership development, interprofessional models of practice and organizational culture change with a view to creating the conditions necessary for Health System transformation.
Dr. Baidwan is still practicing as a Family Physician, and is a Clinical Assistant Professor in the Department of Family Medicine at the University of British Columbia and Adjunct Assistant Professor at the Island Medical Program, University of Victoria.
