Message from the Director of Research and Innovation

Welcome to our second issue of the DFM's Research newsletter, INNOVATION. This biannual e-newsletter facilitates the sharing of research and innovative academic projects by our faculty and trainees. In this issue, you will see highlights, stories and articles of interest by our scientists, clinician scientists, teachers and residents. We have many active scholars in our Department doing cutting-edge research and innovation in health services research, medical education research, educational innovations, quality improvement, and more. This year we launched a New DFM Innovator Awards program and have already funded five DFM faculty. We will have a second call for this program on October 15, 2020. For more information, please contact either Sylvie Forgues-Martel or myself at
