Team

The Unit’s expertise is based in particular on the facilitation of collaboration between the four Réseaux universitaires de santé et de services sociaux (RUISSSs), their faculties of medicine (Laval, McGill, Montréal and Sherbrooke universities) and their research teams. The coming together of these traditionally highly competitive institutions is in itself a notable success attributable to the establishment and operation of the Unit.

Our pan-Quebec Unit comprises more than 50 experts.

  • Teams offering expertise throughout the province
  • 5 axis
