Salesforce consultant and regional obstetrical consultant Giorgio Agarwal, who has been working in the health care industry for nearly a decade, has been nominated by his peers to be Canada’s next Prime Minister.
Agarwal will take office in November and has a wide range of experience in healthcare, including a stint as a consultant to the Canadian Institutes of Health Research.
He is a professor of obstetrics and gynaecology at McMaster University and a past president of the Canadian Association of Reproductive Medicine.
He previously worked as a medical adviser to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and is also a founding member of the Global Doctors for Canada group.
“I’m very happy to be nominated,” Agarwa told CTV News.
“The future is bright.
It’s very exciting for my country.
I’m very excited.”
Agarwa has spent the last three decades in the healthcare industry, where he has worked on healthcare technology, medical devices, diagnostic imaging and diagnostic services.
His focus is on the delivery of high quality care and he says he is passionate about the role of the doctor-in-(practice) role.
“A doctor in practice is not just someone who does the exam, the X-ray, the physical and the other physical aspects of the patient’s condition,” he said.
“It is also the person who can provide expert guidance and help the patient with their questions and their concerns.”
Agamwal said his family has been in the medical field for more than a century.
He said his parents, who were doctors themselves, were always a part of the process of the medical profession.
“My parents were always involved in the care of patients.
My mother was a doctor, and my father was a specialist in the field of medicine,” he explained.”
As you grow older you get to know more about yourself.
It is a privilege to be involved in that.”
Agagarwal also said he is not surprised to be being nominated for the position.
“It is not uncommon that doctors and nurses and midwives are nominated for cabinet posts,” he noted.
“There is a lot of continuity between the government of Canada and the provinces and territories.
The Prime Minister will be elected in November of next year.
This is a very interesting moment.”
Agarfwals nomination comes as the Canadian government prepares to announce its next Chief Medical Officer, who will have the responsibility of managing the government’s medical spending, health care infrastructure and the delivery and quality of healthcare services.
The chief medical officer will be responsible for delivering the Prime Minister’s vision of a healthier, more prosperous Canada.
