It is with great pleasure that Dr. Luis Rivero-Lopez and I (Dr. Marjorie Pomerleau) take on the leadership of the family medicine residency program at the Montfort Hospital. We wish to extend our sincere thanks to Dr. Lyne Pitre, who over the past 22 years has done an incredible job of developing this program. Bravo!
Dr. Rivero-Lopez and I are both graduates of the Montfort residency program. Having graduated in 2013, Dr. River-Lopez now splits his time between the Montfort teaching unit and Emergency Medicine. I graduated in 2011, and currently have both a rural family medicine practice and work as a hospitalist at the Montfort. We have both been involved in teaching for several years, at many different levels.
This new challenge is perfectly suited to our interests in francophone medical education, which is dear to our hearts. Our vision is to promote excellence in medical education and support our residents as they embark on this great adventure to become family physicians!
