John Ross Augustine
Physician, mentor, community leader Dr. John Augustine has never let obstacles stand in his way and this tenacity has been Northwestern Ontario's good fortune. He grew up in Kitchener, Ontario and received his Medical Doctorate, with Honours, from The University of Western Ontario in 1952. He moved to Thunder Bay in 1954 to set up a successful practice as a family physician at the Spence Clinic. In 1956 he returned to Toronto for three more years of training and in 1959 became a Certified Specialist in Internal Medicine following examination by the Royal College of Physicians & Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC). Dr. Augustine worked as a highly respected specialist in this field until his retirement from clinical practice in 1994. He also received Internal Medicine Fellowships from the American College of Physicians in 1964 and the RCPSC in 1972, and has had articles published in The Canadian Medical Association Journal, The Lancet, and other medical reviews.
John's abiding interest in health care led him to take on the roles of educator and activist. In his long involvement with the RCPSC he has been an oral examiner testing post-graduate Internal Medicine students from universities across Canada, and took part in the RCPSC's Accreditation Committee which certifies post-graduate medical and surgical programs at Canadian medical schools. He also served four years on the Executive of the Royal College of Physicians & Surgeons, including a term as Vice-President (Medicine). He received a Certificate of Appreciation from McMaster University Faculty of Health Sciences for his early and continued significant role in the formation of the Northern Ontario Medical Program (NOMP) and in 2000 became a Senior Member of the Canadian Medical Association.
Putting his keen intellect to use, Dr. Augustine became involved in several landmark undertakings that have changed the face of health care education and delivery in Northwestern Ontario. He was President of McKellar's Medical Staff from 1968 to 1970 and was the Founding Chair of the Cardiac Stress, Palliative Care, and Ethics Committees at McKellar, and later participated in the Fund Raising Committee for the construction of the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre. John was also a founding member of the Thunder Bay branch of the Addiction Research Foundation of Ontario and worked extensively in the area of addictions treatment and prevention; he set up the first Methadone treatment outreach for addicts in the late 1980s.
In 1971, Dr. Augustine, along with many others locally and with the new Dean of Medicine at McMaster University, Dr. John Evans, developed the Northwestern Ontario Medical Program (NOMP) as its Founding Chairman.
...
Giving to the community in a professional and volunteer capacity has been a hallmark of Dr. Augustine's life. He has participated on countless boards and committees and been a generous patron of arts and culture. Both he and his wife Annette (who was named a Fellow of Lakehead University in 1995) are founding members and longstanding supporters of the Thunder Bay Art Gallery and the Thunder Bay Historical Museum Society. John has received many awards recognizing his outstanding public service, including a Coronation Silver Jubilee Medal. In 2005, during its 40th Anniversary year, Lakehead University honored Dr. and Mrs. Augustine for being two of its 40 Northern Lights - forty men and women who have made extraordinary contributions to the development of Lakehead University.
As NOSM's charter class graduates this spring, it is clear that Dr. Augustine's abilities as an advocate and a strategist have enhanced the quality of health care in Northwestern Ontario. But in spite of his many achievements, he is quick to draw attention away from himself saying that: "It's been such a privilege to work with the community and to see the medical school come to fruition; so many people other than me have been involved in its success."
