(Honours) from Queen’s University in 1991, her MD from the University of British Columbia in 2000 and completed her 5 year Royal College specialty training in emergency medicine in 2000. She recently graduated with a Masters in Forensic Medicine from Monash University in Melbourne, Australia and was awarded the Monash University Academic Medical for Excellence in Graduate and Postgraduate Coursework Study, for having the highest record of academic achievement. Tracy is currently the only physician in North American with both an academic degree and a Fellowship in clinical forensic medicine. Tracy has also been honoured as a Founding Fellow in the Faculty of Clinical Forensic Medicine with the Royal College of Pathologists of Australia.
Tracy is currently an Emergency Room physician at Vancouver General Hospital and the Medical Director, Sexual Assault Service for the Provincial Health Services Authority.
Dr. Pickett and Michael Thomas will demonstrate a cross examination of a treating physician in a typical motor vehicle accident scenario. Particular emphasis will be placed on questions pertaining to clinical records; including the cross examination technique of boxing. Every physician who has provided treatment to a patient and is called upon to testify should be aware of this type of questioning. A brief presentation will follow the demonstration which will explain the type of questions asked along with a brief explanation of how the evidence will impact the case at large.
Co-ordinator – Michael Thomas
