Dr. Richard E. Rossall Award

Dr. Richard Rossall was a founder of the Division of Cardiology at the University of Alberta. During his leadership as Divisional Director for 20 years, Dr. Rossall was successful in building a state of the art Cardiology program. He is best known for his organizational, teaching and clinical skills. Colleagues have described him as a master diagnostician with superb clinical acumen. One of his major innovations included the development of a computer based teaching module for trainees which was well ahead of its time. The first ever Postgraduate Training Program at the University of Alberta was created and led by Dr. Rossall. His talents were recognized nationally with successful tenure as the President of the Canadian Cardiovascular Society and an awardee of the Governor General's Confederation Medal.

The Richard E. Rossall Arrhythmia and Valvular Heart Disease Trust Fund was created with a generous donation from the Dr Rossall's spouse, Mrs. Joan Rossall. The interests generated from the management of the fund will be distributed annually to support a research project submitted by a Cardiology Resident to a scientific review committee.
