MD Financial Management Inc. and Scotiabank renew agreement with Canadian Association of Pathologists

Collaboration will facilitate education and research while making a key decision-support tool more affordable for residents

MD Financial Management Inc. (MD) and Scotiabank today announced a renewed agreement with the Canadian Association of Pathologists to facilitate the development and implementation of educational and research initiatives for pathologists across Canada.

The funding will also help ensure that pathology residents have greater access to ExpertPath, a decision-support tool built on expert clinical knowledge. The searchable tool helps these early-career pathologists build their capabilities and expertise in making precision diagnoses.

“We’re proud to be able to help make an important diagnostic tool more affordable to pathology residents, and to continue to support important education and research initiatives for the association’s members,” says MD’s President and CEO, Daniel Labonté.     

As exclusive financial services partners of the Canadian Association of Pathologists, Scotiabank and MD will provide educational materials, banking and financial advice, and financial planning solutions tailored to the needs of Canada’s pathologists and their families.

"MD and Scotiabank have supported our members through educational grants and financial advice for many years,” says Heather Dow, executive director of the Canadian Association of Pathologists. “We are grateful for their support in advancing our mission of developing the pathology profession and promoting high-quality standards for patient care, research and resident education. We are looking forward to three more years of collaboration.”

As the financial services partners of more than 35 organizations, MD and Scotiabank are committed to supporting Canada’s physicians and their families and to building a more sustainable healthcare system.
