Message from the MGSRC President

In my capacity as the elected president of the McGill General Surgery Resident Commitee, I would like to extend my warmest welcome to prospective candidates to the McGill General Surgery community, and to all fellow surgeons alike.

At McGill, surgical residents are at the core of their training program. Represented by their resident elected  President and VP Academic residents, they sit on the Residency Training Committee where their opinions and suggestions are eagerly sought by the staff committee.

Furthermore, being situated in Canada's lively Montreal, the MGSRC organizes frequent events taking advantage of the restaurants and night life, improving resident moral, and increasing the team spirit. We look forward to meeting you at McGill.

Dr. Jonathan Cools-Lartigue
