Mission: - Clinical Care: Our multidisciplinary teams of healthcare professionals provide tertiary and quaternary care to patients from across Quebec and elsewhere. We also provide primary and secondary care and trauma emergency services to adults and children in the Montreal region. - Research: The Research Institute of the MUHC (RI MUHC) is an international research powerhouse. It supports over 600 researchers and over 1,700 graduate and post-doctoral students and fellows devoted to a broad spectrum of fundamental and clinical research producing over 1,400 publications per year. Further, over 1,000 clinical research studies are conducted each year. - Teaching: The MUHC prides itself on the quality and rigour of its clinical and scientific training. Each year, close to 3,000 people train at the MUHC, including 825 medical and surgical residents, 1,075 nurses, 450 medical students and 525 allied-health students. Continuing education programs are also an integral part of providing the best patient care. All physicians at the MUHC are cross-appointed to the McGill University Faculty of Medicine. - Health Technology Assessment Unit (TAU): The MUHC Health Technology Assessment Unit (TAU) is a large body that advises the academic health centre in difficult resource allocation decisions. Using an approach based on sound, scientific technology assessments and a transparent, fair decision-making process, equipment, drugs and procedures used by healthcare professionals are prioritized on a continuous basis ensuring the best care for life with the best use of resources.

Vision: As one of the world’s foremost academic health centres, the MUHC will assure exceptional and integrated patient-centric care, research, teaching and technology assessment.
