President’s Award for Physician Leadership

Dr. Claudio Martin

Dr. Claudio Martin is the chair/chief and medical director, critical care at London Health Sciences Centre and Western University. His academic practice and research at LHSC has spanned nearly 23 years.

Nominated by members of the critical care team, Claudio is described as embodying the qualities, vision, leadership and professionalism that were exemplified by the late Dr. Murray Girotti, for whom the award was established.

Known for his open-door policy, calm demeanour and consideration and acknowledgment of others, Claudio’s personal leadership style is characterized by LHSC’s core values of respect, trust and collaboration. From his instrumental work in developing the Critical Care Research Network, a Canadian collaborative of 40 community and academic critical care units, to his introduction of a formal mentorship program within the critical care physician team, his commitment to advancing LHSC’s vision of exceptional experiences, extraordinary people and engaging partnerships is evident in all that he does.
