There is no sole developer of the current Health Science (Honours) curriculum. Its entering class was in 2000 and over the years, feedback from students and faculty alike changed the very face of the program.
If you go to this link (http://www.stlhe.ca/en/awards/alan_b...cipients.p hp
) and head to 2005 when the Health Sciences program won a prestigious award for its unique pedagogy, you'll see raw data regarding student satisfaction in the program.
Everyone's perception of the program is unique and I can't speak for our Assistant Dean, however, I don't think he would have stuck around for the past ten years unless he liked what he was doing.
