The Division’s mandate includes provision of clinical services and patient care in the inpatient and outpatient settings, teaching and professional learning, research and scholarly activities, and administration and leadership. The Division of Respirology, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine has ten full-time members, seven of whom practice Respirology, three whom practice Critical Care Medicine along with Respirology, four whom specialize in Sleep-Disordered Breathing along with Respirology, and two whom are PhD’s. Dr. Hurst is a Professor Emeritus, after having retired from the University in 2007. The Division has a Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada certified Subspecialty Training Program in Respirology, and in addition, plays an integral role in both undergraduate and postgraduate teaching in the College of Medicine at the University of Saskatchewan. The Division provides a multitude of essential clinical programs, and directs numerous clinical laboratories in the Saskatoon Health Region. Many of these clinical programs and laboratories are provincial resources and unique to Saskatchewan. In addition to the provision of clinical care and teaching, the Division also undertakes, supervises and participates in a number of active research programs. Division members collaborate with interprofessional colleagues and other investigators in the College of Medicine and at the University of Saskatchewan, and also with research colleagues based at various academic institutions in Canada and elsewhere. The following represents a summary of Division resources, capabilities and activities in 2007-2008. DIVISION FACULTY
