Comments It is unreasonable to ask faculty to provide “ a great deal of effort” beyond normal expectations. One problem is that faculty does not have a strong identity. I used to strongly agree, but time and non-appreciation wear you down. I do and will continue to do so.
Comments Yes, with the limited resources available, we have done exceedingly well. Not with the incumbent dean. I have great respect for the current administration of the College, yet I find myself talking about my commitment to my department. The working relationship between the College of Medicine and the Saskatoon Health Region is completely dysfunctional.
Comments There seems at times to be an adversarial relationship between the administration of the college and the clinical faculty. Loyalty to the College results from my gratitude for the opportunities provided. I dislike loyalty statements.
Comments I would readily and gladly accept any duties which I can perform competently. I would hesitate a bit about duties for which I am not trained. Totally depends on if I am asked or if the assignment is done in a dictatorial way. Are you kidding? Let’s hope things don’t come to this.
Comments Yes, the chemistry is very much there. Values match is crucial. There are a few rotten eggs, but administrative decisions tend to be general rather than dealing with the spoilage. In general, the statement is accurate. However, my concern is that the CoM does not put enough emphasis on research.
Comments I used to be. I am not proud anymore. I am too disappointed in the College’s administration, especially the Dean. People frequently ask me where I work and I proudly refer to the College of Medicine and the U of S. On a national committee I was asked how to be acknowledged. I said Royal University Hospital. The administration leads a College that is concerned about social justice in its broadest sense, and I am very proud to be part of that.
Comments Integration of SHR and the College has resulted in loss of our identification, our democratic process, and our philosophical identification with the College. We have to think back and owe our responsibility to the people of the Province and not take more than we deserve. One develops a sense of loyalty to the institution one is situated in…This is certainly true for me here. But precisely, one develops attachments to the people in the institution.
Comments I am inspired by the College, but I think that we all have to accept responsibility for our own attitudes and actions. The students and patients inspire me. I feel supported, encouraged and challenged (in a positive way) by the College of Medicine senior leadership. The same is sometimes not true at other levels of leadership. I no longer want to contribute to the college, the faculty have been disenfranchised.
Comments Great things are happening here. I would only leave if obliged to. A great amount of change is needed for me to want to stay in the college. I hear similar comments from my colleagues. I have found a fit of values, career advancement opportunities and a sense that I can make a difference.
Comments Coming to the College of Medicine, U of S was the worst decision of my professional life. I had numerous other opportunities but considered working here in the College as an important commitment to the people of Saskatchewan. It has not been easy, but the rewards are considerable. I am glad I am here.
Comments Why would anybody want to leave when we are on the threshold of growth and positive developments. There is tremendous potential to build a remarkable medical school at our current crossroads. A lot of work and networking will need to be invested but the opportunity is unique.
Comments No one agrees with any institution’s policies all the time. It depends on the issue. It is not the policies so much as the processes that are problematic. Mostly, I am on board. I am completely on board with the mission, vision and strategy.
Comments The CoM is key to the University’s success and to the quality of life in Saskatchewan. Used to. Gave up. It seems administration does not care about people. Caring is a two way street. I hope the CoM cares about its faculty and their fate. The CoM needs to be faculty- centered.
Comments The best place at the U of S or any other university. SHR is much better, open and transparent. I am completely satisfied. There are going to be issues anywhere – but I feel supported here.
Comments No. This has been a good move for me and my family. Simply not true for me. Even on bad days, working for the College would be difficult to view as a mistake. Regrets are unscientific. One can never know how things would have gone if different choices had been made.
