News

Published: 9 May 2014

We have wonderful news to share with you. Once again we have a great deal to be proud of in the Department of Family Medicine.  

The results from the Fonds de recherche Santé-Quebec (FRQS) have been announced and we would like to congratulate the members of our department who have been successful.  These competitions are very competitive and few are actually successful in obtaining these salary support awards.

Three of our faculty members have received career awards and 5 graduate students were awarded scholarships.   By obtaining two Chercheur-boursiers (Sante et Societe), we accounted for 11% of these career awards at the provincial level and 20% of the awards given to McGill.  For the students, we accounted for 2% of the provincial awards and 7% of the awards given to McGill.  To put this in perspective, the Faculty of Medicine at McGill has over 500 researchers and more than 1,000 graduate students so this really is amazing for our Department!

McGill Family Medicine now has nine faculty members with FRQS salary award (3 at the Senior level and 6 Junior 1) as well as 2 endowed chairs.

Please join us in congratulating the following members of our department:

Dr. Pierre Pluye, Associate Professor,  who obtained the Senior Chercheur-boursier for his research project entitled "Effets de santé associés à l'application des informations acquises avec les technologies de l'information et de la communication par les cliniciens et les patients de première ligne."  

Dr. Peter Nugus, Assistant Professor, who obtained the Junior 1 Chercheur-boursier, mentored by Dr. Gillian Bartlett, for the proposal entitled "Améliorer le continuum des soins: aller-retour de la collectivité à la salle d'urgence."

Dr. Bertrand Lebouché, Assistant Professor, who obtained the Junior 1 Chercheur-boursier clinicien, mentored by Dr. Charo Rodriguez, for the proposal entitled "Amélioration du dépistage et des soins pour les hommes qui ont des relations sexuelles avec d'autres hommes au Québec, grâce à un modèle de soin du VIH multidisciplinaire."

For our graduate students, success in these competitions means that all three of our current PhD students are now funded with FRSQ scholarships – a testament to their excellent academic achievements.  In addition, two of our current MSc candidates received awards. Please join us in congratulating:

Cristina Longo - PhD Candidate (Supervisor, Gillian Bartlett) for the topic of  "Problématiques de traitement et de prescription chez l'enfant obèse et asthmatique."

Vladimir Khanassov - PhD Candidate starting in September 2014 (Supervisor, Isabelle Vedel) for the topic  "La gestion de cas répond-t-elle aux besoins des patients avec démence légère et leurs aidants? Une étude au devis mixte en services de santé primaires."

Doaa Farid - PhD Candidate (Co-Supervisors, Ellen Rosenberg and Gillian Bartlett) for the topic "Étude de l'impact du jeûne intermittent pendant le mois de Ramadan pour les patients atteints du diabète de type 2."

Svetlana Puzhko  – MSc Candidate (Supervisor, Julie Bruneau (UdeM)) on the topic "Risque de transmission du VHC chez les personnes qui s'injectent des opiacés d'ordonnance: la contribution des modes et des contextes de consommation."
