Dr Vicky Tagalakis welcomes you to the Division of General Internal Medicine at McGill University
Fifty-one faculty members are based at five hospital sites: the McGill University Health Centre (Royal Victoria Hospital, Montreal General Hospital, The Lachine Hospital); the Jewish General Hospital and St. Mary's Hospital Centre. The division includes an extremely varied, strongly committed and highly accomplished group of individuals -- newly hired recruits, associate deans, international leaders in medical education, directors of clinical and research units, past and current associate physician-in-chiefs, Canada Research Chairs, clinical division chiefs, undergraduate and postgraduate medical education directors, internationally renowned researchers, clinical innovators, clinical teachers, and quality improvement researchers.
The last years have brought development and growth of innovative patient care clinical programs including medical obstetrics, peri-operative care medicine, thrombosis medicine, cardiovascular prevention and vascular health, and complex care medicine. Patient care in our programs is increasingly being informed by the flow of knowledge across a continuum from our laboratory-based researchers to our clinical researchers to our population health researchers, and vice versa. This is a reflection of an increasingly strong research culture within the Division. Leaders in quality improvement research and assessment are spearheading the translation of new knowledge into better care and health outcomes for our patients. Our medical educators and clinician teachers impact patient care and improve patient outcomes by innovating, facilitating and enhancing learning among our students, trainees and faculty.
