Please direct inquiries to Carla Zorn at 306-966-1378.


Dr. Keith Ogle was selected to be the first Vice Dean Faculty Engagement at the College of Medicine beginning May 1, 2016. After retiring from the University in 2012, he performed clinical work as a hospitalist at St. Paul’s Hospital for three years. In 2015, he reconnected with the College as Special Advisor to the Dean, with a focus on faculty engagement. As Keith remarks, it would appear his retirement has not gone quite as planned! However, he is excited about the new directions the College has taken and looks forward to supporting and facilitating opportunities for faculty engagement throughout the province.

Dr. Ogle is a University of Saskatchewan graduate. He completed an undergraduate degree in Philosophy with a focus on bioethics and also completed his medical training here. He is a Fellow of the College of Family Physicians of Canada, for whom he has performed several long-term roles with a focus on medical ethics and ethics education. He was a long-time member of the Saskatoon Health Region’s ethics committee and assisted in establishing the region’s first clinical ethics consultation service. He worked as a family physician in the College’s Department of Family Medicine, where he served as Department Head for seven years, from 2003 – 2010.
