MacOrtho would like to congratulate Dr. Osama AlShaya on receiving the 1st ever Clinical Fellow Medical Staff Association Fellow Award. Two additional Fellows from Medicine were also honoured.
Dr. Al-Shaya completed his orthopaedic residency at McMaster in June of 2012 and immediately embarked on a one-year fellowship in orthopaedic oncology. He has raised the educational value of the oncology rotation in orthopaedics to a completely new level. We were extremely fortuitous to have such an intelligent, competent, professional and collaborative surgeon continue to train with us during this academic year. Dr. Al-Shaya is a beacon of professionalism and young leadership and sets the standard for excellence in all CanMEDS competencies. He has been an exceptional role model for our residents and for his fellowship colleagues. It was 100% a pleasure to work with Dr. Al-Shaya these past 6 years and our only regret is that he will be leaving us in July to practice independently in Saudi Arabia.
