Medical Simulation Centre

Dear colleagues,

In keeping with McGill University’s directives to cancel all in-person events, please note that the Steinberg Centre for Simulation and Interactive Learning will be closed until June 5, 2020 inclusively and that all workshops and activities scheduled up to that date will be cancelled.

It is crucial that we respect the government’s ban on in-person gatherings and continue to take key hygiene precautions. These measures are the only ways we can “flatten the curve” — and the sooner we do that, the sooner we can get back together.

Dear colleagues,

As you know, McGill University is committed to helping contain the propagation of COVID-19 and fully supports the Quebec government’s decision to close all schools and universities for the two-week period ending March 29. We all must do our part to “flatten the curve” so that health services are not overwhelmed by the resulting patient load.

Home care may be an option for patients who are recovering after a hospital stay, or for individuals who are dealing with an illness and want to remain at home for as long as safely possible to maintain their existing lifestyle and independence.
