Dr. James A. Low Fellowship in Obstetrics and Gynaecology


Colleagues, family and friends are working to create the Dr. James A. Low Fellowship in Obstetrics and Gynaecology. A lead gift from the Low Family, matched by the Department has kicked off the campaign. With a goal of advancing research and education, this fellowship would bring expertise to Queen’s and honour the internationally recognized work of Dr. Low. During the 20 years as Head, he was instrumental in shaping the Queen’s Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology into one of the most respected academic clinical departments and one of the most sought after postgraduate residency programs in the country.

The contributions of Dr. James A. Low to the medical world and Queen’s University will not be soon forgotten. During Dr. Low’s leadership, the department became recognized for academic excellence at the national and international levels in the areas of maternal-fetal medicine, urogynecology, and gynecologic oncology. It was through the philosophy and ideals of Dr. Low that the department continues to flourish and remains to this day one of the country’s more successful academic departments.

In addition to the legacy he left at the department Dr. Low received many awards during his lengthy career including being named a Fellow of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (United Kingdom), Queen’s University Distinguished Service Award, Kingston First Capital Honourable Achievement Award, Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Medal and this year, just prior to his death, Dr. Low was invested into the Order of Canada.

With all of his achievements, Dr. Low always identified that his successes have been a part of his role with the Department at Queen’s and has always promoted recognition of the university. Ultimate, this fellowship will honour Dr. Low’s influential and productive careers as an academic obstetrician and gynecologist in Canada.
