Dr. Paul Greig, one of the co-founders of the Toronto Video Atlas of Surgery and editor of our HPB (hepatico-pancreato-biliary) and Transplant chapters, is retiring this month and will begin to pursue his dream to become a professional musician.

Dr. Greig is a surgeon with passion and talent for teaching and mentoring. He headed the transplant and fellowship program at Toronto General Hospital, which led him to co-create this online video atlas in 2011 with Dr. Ian McGilvray. His goal for the atlas is to provide fellows with educational materials outside the operating room.

Dr. Greig is always an avid supporter of TVASurg’s experiments with new technologies. He used virtual reality (VR) to teach HPB surgical anatomy and is pioneering our new ventures into photogrammetry with the Toronto Camera Dome. His trust in our creative directions and storytelling has made our job as biomedical communicators pleasant and we couldn’t have asked for a better content advisor to work with.

TVASurg will miss him dearly but we will be proudly carrying on his vision for surgical education, along with the innovative spirit in experimenting with cutting-edge technology!
