You are invited to attend a special meeting of the Faculty Council on Tuesday, February 28 at 4:30 p.m.
As you may be aware, in October 2016, the Minister of Health and Social Services, Gaétan Barrette, convened a meeting of Board members and Foundation presidents of the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC), the Montreal West Island CIUSSS and the West-Central Montreal CIUSSS to hear two visions for the future of McGill’s affiliated health organizations in the west of Montreal.
At the meeting, the Minister announced that Dr. Arvind Joshi, former head of St. Mary’s Hospital Centre, would lead a consultation process across the three health organizations and with McGill. The goal is to gather input on all possible options that would help to optimize the organization of health care services in western Montreal.

Live 2016

I remain pleased with the implementation of our Undergraduate Medical Education (UGME) accreditation plan. Our program is much stronger today, thanks to the many groups and individuals involved at all levels, including our students.
In February 2017, CACMS and LCME* will visit the Faculty to conduct a “limited site survey.” Their job will be to assess our status to date compared to their last visit in 2015. Our ultimate goal is to exceed accreditation standards over time and to continue to excel, which I have no doubt we will do. Our new MDCM curriculum is also resolving certain deficiencies identified by the accreditors, which is excellent news.
