Following on the heels of a $2.4-million gift which launched McGill’s bold new Healthier Societies Initiative, another major gift of $3 million has just arrived to improve the training of our next generation of medical leaders.
Named in honour of internationally recognized McGill physicians and educators Drs. Richard and Sylvia Cruess, the Chair will be awarded to a world-class scholar who will reinforce McGill’s ability to educate talented clinicians and researchers, and who will influence the development of innovative medical curricula and teaching methods around the world.
“McGill’s Faculty of Medicine has long been recognized as a world leader in medical education,” said Dr. Richard I. Levin, Vice-Principal (Health Affairs) and Dean of the Faculty of Medicine. “This new Chair will allow the Faculty to build on its momentum, while strengthening our ability to prepare a new generation of doctors for the future of medicine.”
