The Jewish General Hospital, a McGill University teaching hospital, carries out more than 22% of the training for McGill’s Faculty of Medicine. It is also home to several of the university’s programs, including the McGill AIDS Centre, the McGill Centre for Translational Research in Cancer, the McGill Head and Neck Surgery and Oncology Program, and the McGill Menopause Clinic.
The hospital’s Lady Davis Institute is considered one of Canada’s major biomedical research institutions. It is acknowledged as a world leader in many fields of investigation, including cancer (the Terry Fox Molecular Oncology Group), aging (the Bloomfield Centre for Studies in Aging), epidemiology (the Centre for Clinical Epidemiology and Community Studies), nursing (the Centre for Nursing Research), AIDS, cardiovascular disease, genetics, emergency medicine, nephrology, and the psychosocial aspects of illness. The outstanding quality of this work has enabled the Lady Davis Institute to take a leading position in the level of funding that it attracts per researcher in a hospital-affiliated research institution in Quebec.
