Eligibility As a result of gifts from Dr. Michael Desjardins, a fund has been established at the University of Manitoba to support a number of initiatives within the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery in the Faculty of Dentistry.
Michel Desjardins entered the Faculty of Science at the University of Manitoba in September of 1973, which was the beginning of his long association with the University. Following the completion of his Bachelor of Science degree, he entered the Faculty of Dentistry in 1977. As a student, he demonstrated excellent patient management skills and a “cool head under pressure”. In 1981, he entered his first year of post-graduate training at the Health Sciences Centre in Winnipeg. His accomplishment impressed his supervisors, who rewarded him with a position at the Percy Moore Hospital in Hodgson, Manitoba, supervising senior dental students and providing dental care to residents of the Hodgson region. He was selected for the only residency training position available at the University of Manitoba in the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery program, which he commenced in 1984. He continued to demonstrate his excellent skills and conscientious personality while in this program. Following a few years of practice in Winnipeg and Windsor, Ontario, Dr. Desjardins returned to his home town of North Bay, Ontario, where he currently runs a highly respected surgery practice. His spouse, Dr. Melladee Marvin, also a dental specialist and a graduate of the University of Manitoba (where they met) has been an important contributor to his successful career. Dr. Desjardins is one of the 17 Oral and Maxillofacial surgeons trained at the University of Manitoba since the program’s inauguration in 1977. He is a member of the Royal College of Dentists of Canada and a respected member of the speciality.
Each year, the fund shall be utilised at the discretion of the Director of the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Graduate Program, in consultation with the donor. A portion of the income may be designated to the Michael Desjardins Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Resident Student Award. From time to time, an award will be offered to a student who:
  • is enrolled full-time as a resident in the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Graduate Program;
  • has achieved high academic standing (3.5 grade point average);
  • demonstrates the greatest promise as a future oral and maxillofacial surgeon among the residents in a given year;
  • brings credit and recognition to the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Graduate Program through personal achievement in the speciality (achievement may be judged by, but not limited to, success in research, publications, or community service).
