The health-care professionals who are graduates and trainees of the Faculty will be well-prepared to address the present and future health needs of the Canadian population. They will be oriented to preserving health, technically competent, adept at solving problems, capable of functioning as part of a multi-disciplinary team and committed to life-long learning both for themselves and their patients. They will exhibit ethical behaviour and compassion in dealing with patients, restraint in using health resources, and an inquiring attitude towards the mechanisms of health and disease.
Lastly, our programmes are rooted in a scholarship of education designed to the development and implemention of modern pedagogical techniques.
The Faculty’s research programs contribute to the understanding of the basic mechanisms of health and disease. They develop and evaluate clinical interventions to address health care needs. The research emphasizes collaboration between basic and clinical sciences, and between members of our Faculty and researchers in other disciplines. The faculty encourages and supports outstanding research trainees and research training programs. Our research encompasses the scholarship of discovery and integration.
Members and trainees of the Faculty will provide exemplary, scientifically-based health services to the McGill target population and will participate actively in national and international professional organizations. Our stance encompasses a scholarship of application that aims to ensure that available and new knowledge are used to improve the care and well being of society.
