About the Division and Montreal Children’s Hospital
The MCH is a full service academic pediatric hospital that has had international influence in the care of children for over 110 years. In 2015 it relocated to a brand new and very unique facility that is comprised of separate pediatric and adult hospitals, a Shriners Hospital, cancer centre, and basic research institute on one site. All facilities are attached, facilitating collaboration between the pediatric and adult as well as the clinical and research sectors. The division of hematology/oncology is located within the pediatric hospital with dedicated and adjacent inpatient and outpatient units. The division sees 100 new oncology cases annually and a full range of benign hematology patients including 200 with sickle cell disease, is FACT certified for hematopoietic stem cell transplantation, and is very active in clinical, basic, and translational research.
Greater Montreal is a city of 4 million people with a very multicultural and cosmopolitan flavor. French and English are the dominant languages and ability to communicate in both would be an asset. It is renowned for its summer festivals, excellent selection of restaurants, proximity to world class skiing, and the opportunity for a high standard of living with the cost of real estate considerably lower than many other major metropolitan areas in Canada and United States.
