More than an institute

The ISM: Knowledge!

Montfort and its knowledge institute, the Institut du Savoir Montfort (ISM), what a dynamic duo! It’s a story of mutual support in achieving their projects and activities. The numbers below speak for themselves.

But it’s so much more. It’s a means to assert Montfort’s presence in the regional medical and scientific community thanks to the Journées Montfort (JM2019), the PneuMontfort Conference and Body and Mind, which brought physicians and researchers together. A presence that reaches far and wide through presentations at national events (Family Medicine Forum, SimOne) and beyond, by bringing some 20 students from France, Switzerland and Belgium to Montfort for their internships.

It’s also the energy that drives Montfort’s commitment to supporting research conducted by our physicians (18 projects under the Alternate Funding Plan) and training to help the Mental Health Program move towards a recovery-based approach. And let’s not forget the major undertaking of training of 1,800 employees and physicians, required for the major undertaking of transitioning to an electronic health record.

Lastly, it’s about being recognized among the 40 Top research hospitals in Canada, earning accreditation with the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada for the simulation program, and being one of the first five hospitals in the country to receive Choosing Wisely certification.
