It is with the deepest sadness and sorrow that we announce the death of Dr. Ian McWhinney, yesterday, September 28 in Saskatoon. Dr. McWhinney was 85 years of age. Dr. McWhinney was widely regarded as the father of Canadian family medicine. He was the first Professor of family medicine in Canada and the first chair of the Department of Family Medicine at Western University. He was an Officer of the Order of Canada and a member of Canada’s Medical Hall of Fame.
Our heart goes now to his family, his friends and all who were close to him.
