Congratulations to Dr. Jean-Martin Laberge, who was honored as the 2019 Mentor of the Year for the region by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons in Canada. Dr. Laberge, who has been practising and teaching pediatric surgery at the Montreal Children’s Hospital (MCH) since 1983, is the first pediatric surgeon in Quebec to receive the honour. “Residents and young staff come to you for advice and it’s flattering when someone says you’ve been a mentor to them. It’s an honor to be considered as such,” says Dr. Laberge, who has not only distinguished himself in the fields of research and teaching, but also as a clinician. “You have nurtured, educated and mentored everyone who has come across your path and you have done it selflessly, willingly and joyfully. I know that because I am one of those,” says Dr. Sherif Emil. “Recognition of Dr. Laberge is recognition of the entire MCH!”
