Allied Health Professions - Professional Schools

Several schools that are part of the allied health professions are also part of the McGill Faculty of Medicine. These include the School of Nursing and the Schools of rehabilitation and communication sciences. They offer both professional (applied) and research-oriented educational programs.

Patient Resource Centres

The MUHC hospitals all have Patient Resource Centres that provide patients and their families with the latest medical information, as well as support and community resources. Some of the material is bilingual (English/French), and some Centres have computer workstations that can link users to reliable and current consumer health information on a wide range of topics. Librarians are also available to help users find the type of information that they are looking for. The Patient Resource Centres can be reached by e-mail or by telephone, and walk-ins are also welcome. MUHC Health Education Collection: (more modules will be coming soon)
