The Montreal Children’s Hospital Foundation’s Annual Golf Tournament organizing committee is proud to announce the creation of the Wendy McDonald Chair in Pediatric Medical Education.
This academic chair is crucial to the future of healthcare as it will provide fertile ground for new and innovative research into medical education, which translates into new and innovative forms of clinical care. However, we must raise an additional $800,000 to complete the chair. Your donation can help can to make this project possible!
Since 1997, funds raised by The Montreal Children’s Hospital Foundation Golf Tournament have supported a host of projects like those listed below that have helped attract and retain expert talent at The Children’s, and transformed care for young patients.
Held by one of Canada’s top cardiovascular surgeons, Dr. Christo Tchervenkov, the Tony Dobell Chair has given The Children’s the expertise to treat the most complex of heart problems on even the tiniest of patients. Dr. Tchervenkov has performed countless lifesaving open heart surgeries, frequently on premature newborns. This past year, he treated Vincent Lambert who, after 10 months on a mechanical heart, received a transplant and recovered in record time. Read more about the Tony Dobell Chair in pediatric surgery here.
Funds raised by the Tournament have allowed The Children’s to offer a surgical fellowship, drawing young and outstanding talent to the Hospital. A former beneficiary of a MCHF Golf Tournament-funded fellowship is Dr. Mirko Gilardino. Since completing his fellowship at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Dr. Gilardino returned to The Children's where he is Director of Craniofacial Surgery. His expertise in this field is sought after far and wide and has positioned The Children’s as a leader in craniofacial treatment.
Remaining at the forefront of the latest medical advancements in specialized care means exchanging expertise with other global pioneers in the fields. Funds from the MCHF Golf Tournament were used to establish a visiting lectureship series, bringing leading surgeons from across the continent to visit The Children’s and share their knowledge. Specialists from Harvard Medical School, the University of California, San Francisco, and Toronto’s SickKids Hospital are among those who have shared their talent with The Children's.
A renowned neurosurgeon in his field, Dr. Jean-Pierre Farmer is a true crusader for The Children’s. Under his leadership, The Children’s acquired Canada’s first pediatric Intra-Operative MRI, used during brain surgery to allow surgeons to better identify tumours and reduce the risk of multiple brain surgeries for young patients who are often facing the worst. Dr. Farmer currently holds the Dorothy Williams Chair in Pediatric Surgery, a chair established through Golf Tournament funding. This chair ensures that Dr. Farmer has the resources to continue to innovate for the benefit of The Children’s young patients.
