The Division of Clinical Epidemiology of the MUHC was formed in 2007 from the merger of the Division of Clinical Epidemiology of the Montreal General Hospital and the Division of Clinical Epidemiology at the Royal Victoria Hospital. While the Division is in the process of developing a new mission statement to better reflect the activities of all the members, the general mission and objectives are given below:
The mission of the Division is to improve the health of individuals and populations through the conduct and promotion of high quality interdisciplinary research.
In order to accomplish the mission, the Division has several overlapping objectives:
