Welcome to the Department of Medicine at McGill University

Department of Medicine LogoThe Department of Medicine is a large, multifaceted academic and clinical organization built around the medical services of McGill's principal teaching hospitals: the McGill University Health Center, the Jewish General Hospital and St. Mary's Hospital. In addition to clinical and teaching services directly related to patient care, the Department includes a broad array of research programs and its effort extends to all McGill hospitals and to the McGill campus with its researchers based at the Research Institute of the MUHC, the Lady Davis Research Institute, the Genome Center, the McGill Life Sciences Complex and the Goodman Cancer Center.  The Department is part of the Faculty of Medicine and is a major contributor to the undergraduate medical curriculum.  It is responsible for a large number of residency training programs, in core internal medicine as well as in a large number of sub-specialties of medicine and it also serves as the the host for one of the largest graduate programs within the University, administered through the Division of Experimental Medicine.  Enjoy your visit to our website.
