Dr. Christine Hall


In March, Dr. Michael Murray retired from his position as deputy registrar after almost ten years leading the accreditation programs and Physician Practice Enhancement Program. We are grateful for his leadership and wish him much enjoyment as he embraces new adventures in retirement.

The College is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Christine (Chris) Hall, MD, MSc, FRCPC, to the position of deputy registrar, accreditation programs and quality assurance.

Dr. Hall has more than 20 years of medical leadership experience. After initiating her career as a nurse in Calgary, Dr. Hall attended and completed medical school graduating with her MD in 1996, and was accepted into the emergency medicine program at the University of Calgary. She attained her FRCPC in emergency medicine in 2001 and completed an MSc in clinical epidemiology in 2002.

While living in Calgary, she held several medical leadership positions while also working in emergency medicine before moving to Victoria in 2006. Since then, she has practised as an emergency department physician and served as a department head, chief of staff, medical director in medical affairs, and most recently as executive medical director, quality, patient safety improvement and experience, and acting vice president, medicine for Island Health. In addition to her nursing and medical experience, Dr. Hall is also a certified board director.
