BC RRTs are Running for the CSRT Board of Directors!

Kuljit Minhas RRT

Dear Canadian Colleagues,

My name is Kuljit Minhas and I am interested in the CSRT Board position as Director of the Leadership Perspective. I graduated from the Respiratory Therapy program at Thompson Rivers University (TRU) in Kamloops BC, following the completion of a Bachelor of Sciences at TRU. I have been a Respiratory Therapist for 13 years. Currently my role is Respiratory Therapy Supervisor at Royal Columbian Hospital (New Westminster, BC), which I have been in for the last 2 years. Prior to this my role for 5 years was the Clinical Resource Therapist/Educator. In addition to this I was the president of the British Columbia Society of Respiratory Therapists from 2015-2018. During my time as president, I was instrumental in the implementation of provincial educational road shows. I have been participating the last 3 years in the development of a college/regulation for Respiratory Therapists in BC. With these roles I have gained substantial knowledge and experience in our profession and how important it is that we keep moving forward as proactive health care workers. I have spoken at the CSRT educational conference 3 times over the last few years, and through my involvement with the society, I have discovered the importance of the role of the national society. I would like to bring my skills of educational development, supervisory leadership, engagement and motivation to the board so we may keep advancing and promoting the Respiratory Therapy profession.

Thank you for your consideration,

Kuljit Minhas
