The McGill University Health Centre (MUHC) was founded in 1997 through the merger of six hospitals: the Montreal General Hospital, Jewish General Hospital, the Royal Victoria Hospital, the Montreal Children's Hospital, the Montreal Neurological Institute, and the Montreal Chest Institute. It is a major healthcare network in Montreal, Quebec and one of the world’s foremost academic health centres. Building on the tradition of medical leadership of its founding hospitals, the MUHC provides exceptional multidisciplinary patient-centric care. It is a bilingual teaching hospital affiliated with McGill University and is one of the largest medical institutions in Canada. The hospital’s primary mission is to provide inpatient and ambulatory care to its downtown and West Island clientele, as well as specialized and ultraspecialized services to the broader metropolitan and provincial population.
Since we started the cooperation with MUHC in July 2011, the training program has gone smoothly over the past 5 years. 4 groups of 12 physicians have successfully completed the clinical training at MUHC so far. The 5th group is in the procedure of visa application and they will go to Canada in March 2016.
Our hospital is in a critical period of development at present. Therefore, we need more well trained clinicians through international exchange. The cooperation between the MUHC and our hospital will be further strengthened in the future.
