Contact Us & Make Appointments

Counselling
Our Wellness Consultants/Advisors provide a safe and confidential space to support learners in resolving issues that may be interfering with their wellness and learning. The Wellness Consultants/Advisors serve different units (UGME/Dentistry, PGME, and Schools of ISoN, SPOT and SCSD) as well as campuses (Montreal and Outaouais) within the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences. Please be sure to book with your respective Wellness Consultant/Advisor according to your program and campus. Once you book an appointment with a Wellness Consultant/Advisor, they will become your person of contact for all future sessions. Kindly book follow-up appointments with the same person, unless instructed otherwise.
