Meet Your New CFAC Representative – Dr. Jennifer Yam

The Clinical Faculty Affairs Committee (CFAC) is an advisory committee to the Director, Clinical Faculty Affairs on the academic policy concerns of the clinical faculty as they relate to appointment and promotion, recognition and remuneration, faculty educational development, Faculty of Medicine representation and other issues of this nature.

Dr. Jennifer Yam is the new representative for OBGYN.

Dr. Jennifer Yam is originally from Toronto, Ontario, but completed her medical degree and residency at the University of British Columbia. She started her practice based at St Paul’s Hospital in 2019, and is currently clinical faculty in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology. She takes pride in providing clinical teaching at the bedside and surgical skills in the operating room. Outside of medicine, she is often chasing her toddler around, but also enjoys completing jigsaw puzzles and crocheting once said child is sleeping. She has healthy appetites for delicious food and beautiful shoes.

​The Department would like to thank Dr. Nadia Branco for serving as the previous representative.
