Teaching

We’re not only making discoveries, we’re sharing them with the wider medical community, giving the bright minds of today the tools to make their own discoveries tomorrow.

Sharing knowledge – so everyone benefits

Knowledge is only useful if it is shared. Many of the Shriners Hospitals for Children® – Canada attending physicians and researchers also teach at local colleges and universities. The relationship is particularly close with world-renowned McGill University, which is itself no stranger to pushing the knowledge envelope in the field of medical research.

In 2011 McGill University and Shriners Hospitals for Children-Canada announced the creation of the Francis Glorieux Chair in Pediatric Musculoskeletal Research. The $3-million Chair, established at McGill University and based at Shriners Hospitals for Children-Canada, is an academic appointment to help to attract or retain world-class Shriners Hospitals for Children olars who pursue the understanding and treatment of complex orthopedic conditions.

The results aren’t just apparent in the results we see here and now. Sharing knowledge with the many gifted students who come to the hospital to learn passes on the tools they need to make new discoveries in the years to come. That means the gift you give now will continue to give for years to come.
