The McGill University Department of Family Medicine and the St. James Literary Society are pleased to present the Dr. Hirsh Rosenfeld Annual Distinguished Lecture in Family Medicine.

Of interest to the general public as well as to health-care professionals, this Distinguished Lecture Series in Family Medicine was inaugurated in 1990 and was made possible by an endowment by the late Dr. Hirsh Rosenfeld, a Montreal family physician. He was a staunch supporter of a number of educational activities and this lecture series is another example of his generosity.

Refreshments will be served.

Marion DoveDr. Marion Dove, an Assistant Professor in the Department of Family Medicine at McGill University, currently holds the position of Director of Postgraduate Education (Residency program) as well as being a practicing family physician.  She previously held the position of  Director of the Faculty Development in Family Medicine at McGill from July 2009-November 2015.   Dr. Dove grew up in Toronto, attending Harvard University (1988) prior to obtaining her MD from McMaster University in 1994.  She completed her residency in family medicine at McGill University (1996), and a Women’s Health Scholarship at the University of Toronto (1997), before beginning her family practice at the CLSC Cote-des-Neiges in 1998.  To this day, her family practice remains there and includes obstetrics with deliveries at the Jewish General Hospital.  From 2003-2005 she practiced remote medicine in Blanc Sablon, on the lower north shore of the St. Lawrence River.  To provide more insight in to the meaning of academic family medicine, Dr. Dove will outline her experiences with urban and remote clinical medicine; with teaching students, residents, and faculty; and with leadership positions in the Department of Family Medicine. Dr. Dove will speak about the many aspects of her professional work that contribute to the discipline of family medicine. A question period will follow.
