Hall-of-famers: Hamilton professors inducted into medical hall of fame

News Apr 14, 2016 by Joel OpHardt The Hamilton Spectator

Two Mac professors were inducted into the Canadian Medical Hall of Fame Thursday evening.

Professor Michael Bliss of Toronto, Dr. C. David Naylor, the late Sir Charles Tupper, and Dr. Mark Wainberg joined McMaster doctors May Cohen and Gordon Guyat at the hall of fame induction ceremony held at the Hamilton Convention Centre.

The CMHF, established in London, Ont., in 1994, is the only national hall of fame of its kind in the world, dedicated to those who impact the lives of Canadians and others around the world. Each year, up to six people can be inducted.

Dr. May Cohen is known as a leader in the field of women's health.

Cohen, who graduated at the top of her class in 1955, spent the first two decades of her career as a family physician in Toronto.

In 1977 she came to McMaster University, serving as associate dean of health services from 1991-96. She co-founded the Women's Health Office in 1991, causing other schools to follow suit, and ultimately culminating in the creation of a provincial inter-school women's health curriculum committee.

Cohen's efforts to institutionalize women's health transformed the sector for female students and professors, and her ability to draw the sector's attention to issues of gender, sexuality and women's health has substantially impacted patient care.

Dr. Gordon Guyatt has helped Canada become a world leader in evidence-based medicine (EBM).

He joined McMaster in 1983 and spent 20 years in the measurement of health-related quality of life.

He served as director of the internal medicine residency program from 1990-97, and during that time developed the concept of EBM.

Guyatt went on to form an international EBM group that developed these concepts with landmark publications.

The resulting "Users Guides to the Medical Literature" is now used in medical programs around the world.

Guyatt's Grading of Recommendations Assessment Development and Evaluation (GRADE) approach is now used by more than 80 organizations across the globe.
