Congratulations to Dr. Duncan Bowes, Resident of the Month!
Duncan Bowes, PGY4, Anesthesia
Duncan is originally from Fredericton, New Brunswick. He completed his medical training at Dalhousie’s satellite campus in Saint John, New Brunswick before heading west for residency. He and his wife feel extremely fortunate to be a part of the wonderful community here in Saskatoon.
Outside of work Duncan enjoys road biking, drinking coffee slowly on the weekend and podcasts. His dog Zoe is also a source of perpetual joy.
He would like to share this award with his colleague, Gaurav Jain, without whom the anesthesia resident wellness retreat would not have happened.
Here are some of the reasons that Duncan was chosen as this month’s Resident of the Month (as quoted from the nomination letter):
“Duncan is a fantastic person who is kind to everyone around him, including his patients, co-residents, nurses, and other health care professionals.”
“Recently, Duncan, along with another amazing resident in our department, Gaurav, took it upon themselves to organize the first Anesthesia resident retreat, which was a success.”
“He is always willing to spend time teaching other residents….His daily enthusiasm at work is contagious.”
The objective of this award is to promote resident well-being by recognizing and rewarding residents who make exceptional contributions, both in their academic field and in their extracurricular activities.
All RDoS members – with the exception of voting members of the RDoS Board of Directors - are eligible for the award, and can be nominated by anyone finding the resident deserving of the honour.
