Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Scholarship
Peter Gill, of Edmonton, AB, is a Rhodes Scholar and recipient of many national and international awards, is the winner of the $25,000 IODE War Memorial Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Scholarship.
Peter’s application impressed the judges with both his important PhD thesis work and his contributions to paediatric medicine in rural Canada and in third world countries via the web. Peter’s doctoral research, to establish best care practices for children, has interrupted his medical studies and taken him to the University of Oxford. A new model of health care recently developed in the United Kingdom improved the quality of care for adults. A pay-for-performance system in which a portion of family doctor compensation based on indicators of quality care was developed. It has resulted in significantly improved patient health.
Peter’s research focuses on identifying and developing a number of key indicators of high quality care for children. Establishing these will enable researchers, funding agencies and policy makers to improve and deliver cost effective care.
Peter will return to Canada in 2013 to complete his medical degree at the University of Alberta and begin his career as a paediatrician as well as a clinical scientist, medical educator and advocate for children.
