Loyal support for the hmr’s teaching mission

Over the past year, the HMR Foundation has generously supported teaching activities geared toward interns and supervisors at Hôpital Maisonneuve-Rosemont by awarding grants totalling $78,000.

In addition to the four fellowships aimed at recruiting the top doctors to enrich our hospital’s healthcare team, the Foundation’s support was used to refurbish a number of heavily used classrooms.

The Internal Medicine Clinical Teaching Unit, located in the 9th floor care unit, was entirely renovated and is now a highly functional setting for learning and collaborating, thanks to donations. This is where resident physicians and externs treat patients under the supervision and tutelage of an internist. The room is also used for interprofessional meetings.

 The Teaching Unit is the incubator where
students develop their clinical reasoning
skills and their ability to build case histories
and conduct physical exams,” said Dr.
Stéphane Ahern, Head of the HMR Medicine
Department. “We owe the Foundation a great
debt of gratitude for investing in the unit,
which is at the heart of the Internal Medicine
Training Program.

Modernized and well-equipped classrooms

Furthermore, a number of computer stations and an HD screen were added; the furniture was modernized; and the current reference books were replaced by more recent editions, much to the delight of our interns. Also, one of the videoconferencing rooms in the J.A. DeSève building was renovated. The University Teaching Department would like to extend its sincerest thanks to donors and the HMR Foundation for its invaluable support.
