Dr. Sarah Cook is thrilled to represent her co-resident physician peers across Alberta through her role as Vice President in Leadership and Education. She brings leadership experience from serving as co-chair of PARA’s Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Committee and the PGME Anti-Racism Task Force at the U of C.
Her passion for medical education has motivated her to complete a Master of Health Professions Education at UBC, where she will continue her research interest in marginalized groups in medical training. Her goal in PARA is to promote leadership and education opportunities for all resident physicians, across both university sites and specialties.
When not at work, Dr. Cook loves hiking with her cockapoo Nakoda, exploring new dining spots in Calgary and travelling abroad. She looks forward to working with you during the upcoming academic year.
Dr. Chloe Lim
Dr. Chloe Lim is a third-year Internal Medicine resident physician from the U of C and 2nd term as VPCIR. Dr. Lim believes in work-life balance despite being a busy resident physician! Her goal is to promote wellness in many shapes and forms within all resident physician cohorts, regardless of specialty, school and interests. Dr. Lim hopes to introduce new forms of wellness funding including snack funds. In her spare time, she loves exploring new restaurants and going to spin classes.
Robin works closely with the Vice President of Community and Internal Relations and the Community and Wellness Committee, organizing well-being related activities and initiatives, as well as overseeing wellness grants and event funding. She is also a staff liaison to the Equity, Diversity and Inclusivity Committee.
In addition, Robin works in the areas of Agreement Compliance and organizing Letters of Understandings annually. If you have any questions about the Agreement, she is more than happy to help!
Robin moved to Alberta from Ontario a few years ago and although she misses the Great Lakes and raccoons, she finds that taking trips to the mountains and the antics of magpies help fill the void in her heart. She enjoys cooking, growing all varieties of tomatoes and listening to 99% Invisible, ideas and Planet Money.

In her spare time, Dr. Yee can be found out and about in her neighborhood – either getting a much-needed coffee or playing at the park with her kids.
