Our college was named after and seeks to honour the spirit of Dr. Henry Norman Bethune. Born in Ontario, Bethune was a great doctor who made important contributions to military medicine based on his experiences as a battlefield doctor in the Spanish Civil War and with the Chinese People’s Liberation Army in the 1930s. His dedication to his field and his patients is greatly admired.
