Congratulations to our own Dr. Mike Murphy, who was recently named 2015 Mentor of the Year by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. "This award honors Fellows of the Royal College who have had a significant impact on the career development of students, residents and/or Fellows," according to the Royal College website. Recipients of this award must also demonstrate the qualities of a 'professional' - that is, commitment to the health and well-being of individuals and society, ethical practice and high personal standards of behavior.
To those of us who know and work with Dr. Murphy, and to the thousands of physicians who have attended The Difficult Airway Courses, this award does not come as a surprise. Mike's dedication to his students and to the advancement of airway management through education is well known and respected throughout the world.
Congratulations, Mike, on this well-deserved honor!
