We are pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Gilles Brousseau to the role of Vice-Dean and Director of Campus Outaouais, Faculty of Medicine, McGill University.

Dr. Brousseau has been a champion of medical education in Outaouais for more than 30 years. Since 2009, he has served as the Faculty’s Assistant Dean of Medical Education for the Outaouais Region. In that role, he has led the establishment of the Campus Outaouais, scheduled to open next year. In addition, he was the driving force behind the integrated clerkship program in Gatineau, which has been highly successful since its launch in 2010. From 1990 to 2007, the Gatineau Family Medicine Unit underwent major expansion under his direction and is now one of the most active McGill-affiliated units outside Montreal.

Building on this work, as Vice-Dean and Director of Campus Outaouais, Dr. Brousseau will continue to oversee the evolution of the new campus, ensuring that the quality of its medical education meets the criteria for academic accreditation and the requirements of McGill University’s Faculty of Medicine. He will also ensure that the new campus’s resource requirements – personnel, financial and technical – are met. In addition, Dr. Brousseau will also collaborate with the CISSS de l’Outaouais and act as the Dean’s delegate in the Outaouais region.

After completing his medical degree at Université de Montréal in 1982, Dr. Brousseau pursued postgraduate training at the Centre hospitalier de Verdun, before relocating to Gatineau, where he has practiced family medicine since 1983. He practiced with the Family Medicine Group at the Clinique médicale Saint-Alexandre, which he founded in 2002, until September 2016. Appointed Assistant Professor at McGill in 1990, he has been active in the clinical teaching of medical students, clerkship students and family medicine residents for many years.

Dr. Brousseau has also been involved in the implementation of electronic health records and has served on several expert committees and ministerial committees, including the Réseau de soutien et de valorisation par les pairs (RSVP), the INESSS / Unité SOUTIEN working group on the use of clinical data from electronic health records and the Québec Health Record. From 2013 to 2016, he also served on the scientific board of the research centre at the CISSS de l’Outaouais.

In 2014, Dr. Brousseau received the MSW Excellence in the Learning Environment Award from his students. This award celebrates excellence in teaching in a learning environment that best reflects the Faculty’s code of conduct in the clinical setting.

Please join us in congratulating Dr. Brousseau on this new position and wishing him continued success with Campus Outaouais.
