A corner-stone of the functioning of the MUHC, providing innovative, coordinated care to patients with complex conditions.

The Division of General Internal Medicine (GIM) is a corner-stone of the functioning of the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC), providing innovative, coordinated care to patients with complex conditions. 

The Division is responsible for core programs such as the Clinical Teaching Units (CTUs), the residents’ clinics, and the internal medicine consultation service in the hospital and in the Emergency Department. 

In addition to these core programs, clinical activities led by GIM include:

  • Complex Care Centre (coordinate care of patients with complex medical problems)
  • MUHC Medical Obstetrics Clinic (MOM)
  • The Vascular Health Unit (hypertension and vascular medicine clinics and training)
  • Pre-operative Clinics
  • Nunavik Centre for Adult Specialty Care 

Division members also provide expertise to other divisions including

  • Bone Metabolism Clinic and MUHC Fracture Clinic, where we provide expertise in post-fracture care, osteoporosis and Paget’s disease
  • Pediatric to adult transition clinics, where we provide expertise in cystinosis and osteogenesis imperfecta
  • Diabetes Clinic, where we provide expertise in metabolic syndrome and exercise
  • Tropical Medicine Clinic

GIM’s clinical activities position the MUHC in a leadership role through

  • The educational excellence of the Division, e.g., the CTUs that the Division lead are a clinical laboratory where innovative medical education and quality improvement research is conducted and where doctors, nurses, pharmacists, physiotherapists and occupational therapists are trained.
  • Novel training programs juxtaposed with clinical research units (vascular medicine) foster academic activities.
  • Models of interdisciplinary care (medical obstetrics).

 Finally, the Division has been instrumental in developing outpatient clinical databases that facilitate patient care and research (OWORD/OACIS).
