Sam Wiseman

Dr. Wiseman graduated from medical school at the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg and also completed his residency training in General Surgery at the same institution, obtaining his Fellowship in Surgery from the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada in 2000.

Dr. Wiseman subsequently moved to Buffalo New York where he spent three years in subspecialty fellowship training at Roswell Park Cancer Institute (RPCI). At RPCI he completed an American Head and Neck Society Advanced Training Council approved Head & Neck Surgery Fellowship, a Society of Surgical Oncology approved Surgical Oncology Fellowship, and an Oncology research fellowship that was focused on studying the molecular biology of cancer. After completing his training Dr. Wiseman joined the staff at St. Paul's Hospital in 2003 and is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Surgery at the University of British Columbia.

While Dr. Wiseman's surgical practice is concentrated on the treatment of thyroid tumors and parathyroid disease, he still also carries out other cancer surgeries (such as sentinel node biopsy and lymph node dissection), and Endocrine Surgery operations (such as laproscopic cholecystectomy and hernia repair).

While his clinical and basic research are especially focused on thyroid and parathyroid disease, Dr. Wiseman has also continued to study other human cancer types in the laboratory including; breast, colon, rectal, and lung cancers. His research has taken a translational approach, or applied new knowledge/discoveries learned in the laboratory to address important clinical diagnostic, prognostic and treatment questions. Dr. Wiseman has many research collaborators (both clinicians and scientists) and is involved in the training and supervision of many undergraduate, graduate, and postgraduate students.

Dr. Wiseman has published many clinical and scientific research papers and his research has been presented at countless meetings locally, nationally and internationally, and has been recognized with many honors and awards.

Notably, in 2005 Dr. Wiseman was the first surgeon in the history of British Columbia to receive the prestigious Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research Scholar Award.

Also notably, in 2007 Dr, Wiseman was selected from surgeons world-wide to receive the prestigious American College of Surgeons Travelling Fellowship to Japan. Please click here for more information.

And recently Dr. Wiseman was a recipient of a 2008 Canada's Top 40 Under 40 Award. Canada's Top 40 Under 40 is a prestigious national award program that annually honours 40 Canadians in the private, public and not-for-profit sectors under the age of 40. The program, now in its 14th year, is managed by The Caldwell Partners International, a search firm. In addition to The Caldwell Partners, national sponsors include Deloitte, National Bank Financial, The Globe and Mail, and Air Canada. Dr. Wiseman and his peers were selected from over 1100 nominees by an independent Advisory Board, comprised of 25 business leaders from across Canada. Honourees were chosen on five key criteria: vision and leadership; innovation and achievement; impact; community involvement and contribution; and strategy for growth.

Throughout his career Dr. Wiseman has contributed to his profession and society in many different ways (other than clinical, research, and teaching contributions) including serving as a reviewer and editor for many medical journals, acting as a grant reviewer for several granting agencies, member of the Executive Council of the British Columbia Cancer Agency Surgical Oncology Network, Department of Surgery representative for the University of British Columbia Clinical Investigator Program, Endocrine Tumor Group Chair for the British Columbia Cancer Agency, and he is the Director of Research for the Department of Surgery St. Paul's Hospital & Providence Health Care.
