A bit about me
James Heilman, MD, CCFP-EM
P.S. My spelling and grammar are poor, so thank you for correcting them. If something I write is completely unintelligible, please send me a request for clarification.
I am entirely a volunteer. My work on Wikipedia via this account is my own and does not relate to positions I hold at UBC, Interior Health, BCEHS, or the Wikimedia Foundation. Nothing I write or do via this account reflect the official position of any of the aforementioned organization.
I do not receive payment or travel expense reimbursement from the Wikimedia Foundation or its chapters, nor do I accept payment or honoraria for any other work on the Internet. In 2011, I accepted travel expenses of approximately $1,500 from the Canadian chapter of Wikipedia. In 2012 and 2013, I donated more than that amount to the WMF. I accept travel expenses from some non-WMF organizations at whose events I speak, but I have never accepted any payments from pharmaceutical companies. I have no financial conflicts of interest in regard to any subject that I edit.

In June 2015, I hired a part-time assistant (User:Lucas559) to help me with medical projects, including the translation task force, the copyright detection bot, supporting students enrolled in classes on which we collaborate, and fundraising for the Wiki Project Med Foundation. In order to avoid conflicts of interest, my assistant and I did not vote on the same discussions. A discussion about the creation of the assistant position may be found here. This position ended in August 2016.
I instruct medical students at East Kootenay Regional Hospital on use of Wikipedia. As a result, readers may note multiple user accounts with the hospital’s IP address working on articles.
