Department of Family Medicine

This year we celebrate 40 years of Family Medicine at McGill! Thank you to all who came and made our Homecoming Gala a success. Photos from the evening can be found on our website. 

The Homecoming Gala featured an inspiring talk by astronaut David Saint-Jacques, alumni of our residency program. Best of luck on your upcoming 2018 space mission! 


With a capacity crowd of over 300 people, and an inspiring discussion about the future of primary care in Quebec, the McGill Primary Care Policy Symposium was a rousing success. For presentation slides, video recordings and publications relating to the symposium, see our website.
