Dr Giuseppe Fuda

Dr Fuda completed his anesthesiology training at Université de Montréal in 2009 and went on to complete a cardiac anesthesia fellowship at McGill University and has been working full time at the Montreal Jewish General Hospital since. 

The Montreal Jewish General Hospital is in the Côte-des-Neiges neighbourhood which is one of the most ethnically diverse neighbourhoods in Canada. With over 100 different ethnic communities, it is one of the few Montreal neighbourhoods where neither the French nor English language dominate. This environment is propitious to values that are very dear to Dr Fuda, which are diversity and equality. His earlier contributions to the department were as Director of the Undergraduate Education in Anesthesia at McGill. Under his tenure (he is now halfway through his second term), he oversaw major changes in the program as well as winning a teaching award for Collaborator of the Year. He has also been a voting member of the Student Promotion Committee at McGill medical school since 2017. 

Dr Fuda then went on to get elected on the board of directors of the Association des Anesthésiologistes du Québec in 2018 and named as an executive in 2020, where he oversaw the norms and safety committee. His most recent accomplishment at the safety committee was the publication of guidelines for the practice of anesthesia in out of hospital care. As of May 1st, 2022, Dr Fuda was named as Vice-President of the AAQ where is very proud to continue advocating for his profession and be able to promote it. Concomitantly, Dr Fuda has been acting as the Quebec representative on the CAS Board of Directors since 2019 and is also involved with ACUDA in the role of Undergraduate Program Director at McGill. Finally, Dr Fuda has been a member of the CAS Standards Committee since 2020.
