Come as you are | Respiratory Therapists



 Choosing to work at the MUHC is all about finding that life-work balance 

For Patrick this means he has time to make music; whether it’s with his Bruce Springsteen tribute band, or just drumming away in his basement. He’s been in bands for 30 years and, pre-COVID, performed in venues across Montreal and has toured North America. When asked why he likes working with us, this is what he had to say: 

Working at the MUHC is a great experience. Employees have a chance to work in an internationally renowned organization that promotes multidisciplinary teamwork and offers opportunities to learn and grow as a healthcare professional. It is also an organization that offers many options for a respiratory therapist, whether you want a career in the Home Ventilation Program, anesthesia, Intensive Care Unit, pediatrics, or pulmonary function testing. And, if you want a change, you can move from one specialization to another all under the umbrella of the MUHC.
