Name of creator
Dr. George C. Walsh M.D. C.M., MSc. F.R.C.P (c), F.A.C.P was born in 1916, the son of pioneering general practitioner Dr. William Charles Walsh. Walsh obtained a B.A. (Hons) in Chemistry from UBC in 1938 and then enrolled at McGill University and graduated MD, CM, in 1942. Walsh enlisted in the Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps as a Medical Officer and was stationed in England and Italy. During the war he served in both the 8th and 9th Field Ambulance. After the War, Walsh commenced graduate training in internal medicine at the Royal Victoria Hospital, Montreal, with a special interest in the role of liver in diabetes mellitus. Upon completion of his studies Walsh returned to Shaughnessy Hospital as chief resident of medicine until 1950. During his tenure at Shaughnessy Dr. Walsh was involved with clinical medicine and taught medical students at the UBC School of Medicine. Private practice with Dr. Murray Baird followed until 1968. In 1964 he joined the Department of Medicine at St. Vincent’s Hospital, Vancouver, where he continued to teach and achieved the rank of clinical associate professor emeritus. Walsh served as the president of the BC Society of Internal Medicine and the Vancouver Medical Association, and sat on the BCMA Board of Directors. He retired in 1982 at the age of 66 and died on 15th April 1999.
