Dr. Bernard McDonald is an Anesthesiologist and Critical Care Medicine Specialist in the Division of Cardiac Anesthesiology at the University of Ottawa Heart Institute. He is the Medical Director of the Cardiac Surgical Intensive Care Unit. He is also Assistant Professor in the Department of Anesthesiology at the University of Ottawa.

Background 

Dr. McDonald earned both his MD and a PhD in Pharmacology and Toxicology in 1996 at Queen’s University, Kingston, Ontario. He then completed his anesthesia residency at the University of Ottawa, obtaining his Fellowship from the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (FRCPC) in Anesthesiology. He subsequently completed a Fellowship in Critical Care Medicine at the University of Ottawa. He joined the Heart Institute as a member of the Division of Cardiac Anesthesiology in 2002.

Research & Clinical Interests 

Dr. McDonald has an active practice in both clinical anesthesiology and critical care medicine and is currently the Medical Director of the Cardiac Surgery Intensive Care Unit at the University of Ottawa Heart Institute. His academic interests include applied cardiovascular physiology, long term outcomes post cardiac critical illness, and chronic critical illness.
