Dr. Doug Munkley started his career in 1980 as an Emergency Medicine Physician for Niagara Health where he practiced until 2016. During this time, he became actively involved in the early development of emergency prehospital care in Ontario and has worked as Medical Director for the Niagara Paramedic Program (1986-2020) as well as for the Niagara EMS Ambulance Communications Services from 2004 to present.
Over the course of his career, Dr. Munkley has been an integral part in EMS research including co-author of the Ontario Pre-hospital Advanced Life Support (OPALS) Project as well as the Resuscitation Outcomes Consortium (ROC) as a Site Investigator. Most recently, as Medical Director for Niagara EMS’s Accredited Centre of Excellence (MPDS and ECNS), Dr. Munkley has helped develop an evidence-based, clinical-outcome response plan based on a Mobile Integrated Health model of service delivery.
Dr. Munkley spends his free time as an avid cyclist, skier, old house restorer, gardener and beekeeper with hopes to resume travelling once his COVID antibodies are up.
