In loving memory – Dr James Cameron
Dr James Cameron was a Founding Director of Queensland Cardiovascular Group (QCG) from 1993, and was Managing Director until late 2019. Under Dr James’ direction, QCG became a well-recognised and respected practice and he played an integral part in creating a culture of compassion, focussed on patient experience, best outcomes, and excellence in cardiovascular care. 
 
James graduated with first class honours from the University of Queensland Medical School. Following the completion of his postgraduate training, he undertook a two year clinical and research training Fellowship in the United States, attending both New England Medicine Centre in Boston, and Stanford University Medical Centre in Palo Alto, California. James has been awarded Fellowships with the Royal Australasian College of Physicians, the Cardiac Society of Australia and New Zealand and American College of Cardiology.
 
James was an active member of the Wesley Research Institute, formerly St Andrew's Medical Institute. He was Chair of Australasian Cardiac Outcomes Registry, and past President of Cardiac Society of Australia and New Zealand. He was passionate about teaching, and was heavily involved in the continuing professional development of general practitioners. James had regular involvement in the teaching and supervision of trainees and advanced trainees in cardiology, as well teaching of undergraduates and graduates in medical school. He worked at Mater Private Hospital Brisbane as a Visiting Medical Officer from 1995 until 2019.
 
James’ clinical research was published in over 80 Journals and Abstracts. His major areas of interest in research included statistical process control methods in assessing cardiovascular procedural outcomes, particularly percutaneous coronary intervention and cardiac bypass surgery, with a number of publications including comparison studies.
 
James treated all with compassion and care, and was passionate about teaching and research. He will be greatly missed by his patients, colleagues and staff at Mater. May his soul rest in eternal peace.
