As Chair of McGill’s Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Dr. Tulandi will continue to lead the strategic planning, as well as the education and research missions of the Department, while mentoring faculty members. He will make recommendations to the Dean on recruitment, academic appointments, promotion and tenure, as well as oversee the allocation of the departmental budget.

As Chief of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Dr. Tulandi will ensure that the quality of care provided by the Department is of the highest standard. He will further enhance collaboration with external partners to provide the best possible care within the specialty and the McGill academic health network.
