He was the first to insert a Swan‐Ganz catheter at St Paul’s in 1972, and performed the first valvuloplasty in 1985. Dr. Dodek had a parallel interest in medical ethics, published on the topic and served as chair of the Ethics committee of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of BC. Dr. Dodek has established this lectureship in gratitude for his positive experiences at St. Paul’s Hospital.
