The JGH Division of Rheumatology is home to outstanding clinicians, educators and clinician researchers, each committed to the pursuit of excellence in clinical care, medical education and research. We provide general and highly specialized rheumatology consultations and follow-up, with special emphasis on scleroderma, inflammatory myopathies and rheumato-oncology.  Our researchers have created and oversee large databases and biobanks in our areas of distinctive expertise, pursuing world-class research.  There are the databases of the Canadian Scleroderma Research Group (CSRG), the Canadian Inflammatory Muscle Study (CIMS) and the Montreal Immune-Related Adverse Events (MIRAE) Biobank. 

The Jewish General Hospital is one of McGill’s major teaching hospitals and home to the Lady Davis Institute for Medical Research (LDI). The LDI is one of the most productive hospital-based research institutes in Canada and Quebec. It has more than 200 researchers, 80 research associates and 250 trainees. Special areas of interest include Clinical Epidemiology, Cancer, Molecular and Regenerative Medicine and Psychosocial Aspects of Disease. Over the years, the LDI has been remarkably successful in attracting outstanding investigators with national and international reputations.  The Division of Rheumatology is one of 20 divisions within the JGH Department of Medicine. In addition to stimulating clinical work, division members have excellent opportunities for intra- and inter-institutional collaborative endeavors, with protected time for scholarly activities.
The McGill Department of Medicine is a leader in academic medicine, and our educational and research missions support excellent and innovative clinical programs throughout its teaching hospitals.
