Description

Dr Arun Jagdeo, a psychiatry resident, is one of BC’s young, emerging physician leaders. In addition to the usual hectic resident’s schedule, Dr Jagdeo is also fully immersed in helping to improve our healthcare system and to empower the physicians who work in it. He doesn’t think this is an additional responsibility—he feels it’s essential—and sees physicians’ work as a calling, not a job. “To me it’s a civic duty—a way to validate our role as leaders in the health care system.” This is the driving force behind Dr Jagdeo’s motivation to be a physician leader.
