Welcome to the Department of Surgery

The Mission of the Department of Surgery is the pursuit of excellence in comprehensive, patient-centered surgical care, teaching, research and evaluation of technology. The Department’s foremost responsibility is to its patients. To fulfill its larger role, the Department must also lead in the development of new knowledge and techniques, in the transmission of these to its communities of students, and in their application for the benefit of society at large.

Clinical Divisions

The McGill Department of Surgery is part of a teaching, research and clinical network. Our surgeons collaborate with other disciplines to off patient centered surgical care.




Undergraduate Postgraduate Surgical Education Teams are constantly developing innovative ways to educate the new generation of learners using simulation and multimedia strategies. We have a tradition of integrating medical students in the surgical care team.


The Experimental Surgery division functions as the research arm of the McGill's Department of Surgery, coordinating research training and representing the research interests of the McGill University Health Centre, at the Faculty of Medicine, Graduate Studies in Research.
