Out-patient activities will be based at the Montreal General Hospital, Stroke Prevention Clinic. This tertiary referral clinic is a key element in developing a world-leading translational research program.
The Department of Neurology and Neurosurgery is affiliated with McGill, Canada’s most international university, which is located in vibrant, multicultural Montreal, in the francophone province of Quebec. The neuroscience community at McGill and in greater Montreal is one of the largest and most diverse in North America.
