James A. Dosman, is considered the “Father of Agricultural Medicine” in Canada. Dr. Dosman received his undergraduate training at the University of Saskatchewan, graduating in Medicine in 1963. After being a general practitioner in Saskatoon for four years, he did his residency in Internal Medicine and Respiratory Medicine and three years as a post-doctoral fellow at McGill University in Montreal, becoming a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians of Canada in 1972. In 1975, he became founding Head of the Division of Respiratory Medicine, Department of Medicine, and in 1986, founding Director of the Centre for Agricultural Medicine, University of Saskatchewan.  He became the Director of the Institute of Agricultural Rural and environmental Health (I.ARE.H) when it was formed in 2001, and the Director of the Canadian Centre for Health and Safety in Agriculture when it was established in 2006.  He was the founding Chair of the Canadian Coalition for Agricultural Safety and Rural Health and founding Co-Chair of the Canadian Rural Health Research Society. He was the driving force behind the establishment of the Canadian Agriculture Safety Program, a national knowledge translation program supported by Agriculture and AgriFood Canada.  Dr. Dosman is credited with establishing the Agricultural Health and Safety Network in Saskatchewan, a farm safety and rural public health municipal based grass-roots knowledge translation organization involving, by 2011, 28,000 rural families. Dr. Dosman is a past Scholar of the Medical Research Council of Canada and a Distinguished Scientist of the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (Regional Partners Program).  He was the Principal Investigator of the Strategic Training Initiative in Health Research national training program “Public Health and the Agricultural Rural Ecosystem”, and the Principal Investigator of the Institute of Population and Public Health Centre for Research Development “Public Health: Canadian Centre for Health and Safety in Agriculture”, both programs sponsored by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research.  The five International Symposia that he has spearheaded have served to assist in defining the scope of agricultural and rural public health in Canada and worldwide.  Dr. Dosman has been the organizer of the $5M private sector “Founding Chairs” fund of the Canadian Centre for Health and Safety in Agriculture.  He served a five year term on the governing council of the Medical Research Council of Canada, is a past president of the Canadian Thoracic Society and Life Member of the Saskatchewan Lung Association.  Dr. Dosman served on the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission from 2002 to 2007.  He received the Award for Meritorious Service to the People of Saskatchewan from the Saskatchewan Association of Rural Municipalities in 2001. He was awarded the University of Saskatchewan Award for Distinction in Public Service and Extension in 2003, was inducted into the Canadian Academy of Health Sciences in 2005, and received the Saskatchewan Order of Merit in 2005.  In 2007 he received the Dean Stueland Scholar Award from the National Farm Medicine Centre, Marshfield, WI, USA.  In 2006-2007 he was a member of the National Research Council of the National Academy (Washington) to review the NIOSH Agriculture, Forestry and fishing Research Program. In 2007 he was instrumental in founding and was named President and CEO of Agrivita Canada Inc, a not-for-profit company aimed at promoting research, public health and safety in agriculture. In 2009 he was bestowed an Honourary Membership in the Canadian Medical Association, and was named among the 100 most influential alumni in the 100 year history of the College of Arts & Science, University of Saskatchewan. In 2010 he was named Distinguished Research Chair, University of Saskatchewan, inducted as a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada and named an Officer of the Order of Canada, and in 2011 he was inducted into the Saskatchewan Agricultural Hall of Fame. He is married to Susan McKay Dosman. They have 5 children.
