Hôpital Montfort and Médecins francophones du Canada sign a partnership

The hospital will offer continuing professional training to francophone physicians in Ontario.

Ottawa, November 4, 2014 Hôpital Montfort and Médecins francophones du Canada are proud to announce the signing of a partnership agreement.

Both organizations are committed to working together to reach francophone physicians, particularly in Ontario, and providing French resources for professional development that meet the highest standards.

By strengthening the offer of medical services in French, both organizations hope to provide even better service to the francophone community. Moreover, each organization will benefit from the networks, resources and expertise of the other in terms of initial and continued training in French.

For example, representatives from Médecins francophones will sit on the scientific committee for the organization of the 14th edition of Journées Montfort, to be held in April 2015.

“Today’s agreement will allow us to join forces to promote French medicine in Canada,” explains Dr. Bernard Leduc, Chief Executive Officer of Hôpital Montfort.

“This partnership allows us to work in synergy in order to better answer the needs of francophone and francophile physicians, their patients and their communities,” states Dr. Marie-Françoise Mégie, Chair of the Board of Directors of Médecins francophones.

Hôpital Montfort is a francophone university health institution that offers quality care in both official languages. With its partners, it contributes to improving the health of communities.

Médecins francophones du Canada is committed to mobilizing physicians around objectives that promote quality medicine with human values, by bringing them together into formal virtual networks to provide them with resources and tools to support their initiatives and projects.
