Michael Green is the Brian Hennen Chair and Head of the Department of Family Medicine at Queen’s University. He is Professor of Family Medicine and Public Health Sciences and was the inaugural Clinical Teachers Association of Queen’s University Chair in Applied Health Economics/Health Policy from 2014-2017, and formerly served as Director of the Centre for Health Services and Policy Research. He is a Senior Adjunct Scientist at the Institute for Clinical Evaluative Sciences (ICES). 

In 2018, Michael was elected as a Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Health Sciences and has served on many professional and government expert committees including the Ontario Expert Panel on Wait Times in Primary Care, the College of Family Physicians of Canada Indigenous Health Working Group, Patient’s Medical Home Steering Committee, and Health Quality Ontario’s Primary Care Advisory Committee. He also practiced in public health as a Medical Officer with Health Canada’s First Nations and Inuit Health Branch from 2003-2014.

Between 1995 and 2003, Michael was a physician and Chief of Staff at a small hospital in Moose Factory, Ontario. The issues and challenges he encountered working in the remote First Nations community cultivated an interest in research and broader health-system issues with an emphasis on primary care, quality of care, equity in health, and Indigenous health and has been supported by major grants from Canadian Institutes of Health Research, the Ontario Strategy on Patient Oriented Research Support Unit and the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long Term Care. 

Michael’s vast interest in many areas of health services and policy research, and knowledge of Canada’s healthcare granting infrastructure, helps ensure that AMS is funding crucial activities in research, education, and clinical practice.
