Martin Tweeddale | Chairperson
Martin was born in England and moved to Canada with his wife in 1969. Martin completed his studies in Physiology and Pharmacology and then completed his medical degree, all at the University of London, England. He was offered the opportunity to complete a residency in internal medicine and clinical pharmacology at the Montreal General Hospital. Martin was certified through the Fellowship of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada in 1972. The following year, the family moved to Newfoundland where Martin was appointed as Assistant (and later Associate) Professor of Medicine and Pharmacology at Memorial University. It was here where Martin’s career focus changed towards critical care medicine. He helped to start the intensive care unit (ICU) at the General Hospital in St John’s and became the first Chair of the Department of Intensive Care.
In 1986, Martin moved to the University of British Columbia as Clinical Professor of Medicine and Director of the ICU at the Vancouver General Hospital. During that time he also became the first Program Director for critical care trainees. He finished his medical career working as a unit director for the ICU at the Queen Alexandra Hospital in Portsmouth, UK. Martin is now retired and has returned to Canada, specifically to Canmore, AB. Martin has served on the boards for several churches and charitable organizations including acting as CAUSE Canada Treasurer from 2014 – 2016. He is currently a Warden at St. Michael’s Anglican Church (Canmore) and serving as the Chairperson for CAUSE Canada.
