Mentor of the Month

Dr. Howard Lim

Dr. Howard Lim is Medical Oncologist at the B.C. Cancer Agency in Vancouver and Clinical Associate Professor with the Department of Medicine at U.B.C. He subspecializes in GI Oncology and is the Chair of the GI Tumour Group at the B.C. Cancer Agency. He is also the Medical Oncology Residency Program Director.

He enjoys the great gifts such as socks and Lego that his residents give him and is always looking for the next great adventure with his family.

Nominated by Dr. Weppler

"In his role as the program director of the medical oncology program at the BC Cancer Agency, he mentors countless medical oncology residents and other trainees."

"I had the privilege of learning from Howie during my time in the program, and I can attest to his exceptional leadership and guidance. Howie practices evidence-based, patient-centered care, and the compassion he shows to his patient is something I will never forget."

"He works hard to further resident’s education, and his passion has helped to grow and develop the residency program. What sticks out the most to me about Howie is how he always goes above and beyond - for his patients, his coworkers and especially for the residents. I feel privileged to have learned from and been mentored by Howie, and I know that is a sentiment shared by countless trainees."

The Leaders Fighting Injustice

"A new day is on the horizon! And when that new day finally dawns, it will be because of a lot of magnificent women…and phenomenal men, fighting hard to make sure that they become the leaders who take us to the time when nobody ever has to say 'me too' again."

The Making of the New Physician Leader

"Fostering a culture of physician leaders"

"The realization that physician-led health care organizations outperform those led by non-physicians is starting to drive a demand for physicians in leadership roles. But medical training rarely prepares doctors to lead, and as the demand for physician leaders grows, so will the demand for specialized leadership training." - Dr. Satiani
