Description

The Faculty of Medicine is one of the constituent faculties of McGill University. It was established in 1829 after the Montreal Medical Institution was incorporated into McGill College as the College's first faculty; it was the first medical faculty to be established in Canada. The Faculty awarded McGill's first degree, and Canada's first medical degree to William Leslie Logie in 1833. His dissertation, "Medical inaugural dissertation on Cynanche trachealis" can be found in the McGill Library institutional repository, eScholarship@McGill.The faculty includes three schools, the School of Communication Sciences and Disorders, School of Nursing, and the School of Physical and Occupational Therapy. It also includes several research centres involved in studies on, for example, pain, neuroscience, and aging. Most of the non-clinical parts of the faculty are housed in the McIntyre Medical Sciences Building ("The Beer Can"), situated on McGill's downtown campus on the south side of Mount Royal between Avenue des Pins and Avenue Docteur-Penfield.The McGill University Health Centre is affiliated with the faculty, and is composed of five teaching hospitals — the Montreal General Hospital, the Montreal Children's Hospital, the Montreal Neurological Hospital, and the Royal Victoria Hospital, which incorporates the Montreal Chest Institute. Five other major health care facilities are also affiliated with the faculty: Jewish General Hospital, Douglas Hospital, St. Mary's Hospital, Lachine Hospital and Lakeshore General Hospital. In April 2006, the Quebec government approved plans to commence the first phase of construction of the new, redeveloped McGill University Health Centre (MUHC) — which has been completed in 2015.
