Congratulations to Dr. Claude Roy: 2013 Canadian Medical Hall of Fame Inductee
December 20, 2012 - INMD congratulates Dr. Claude Roy, who is among the six medical heroes named to Canada’s Medical Hall of Fame. Considered one of the early pioneers in pediatric gastroenterology, Claude is a man of science and humanism who always puts the child first. An outstanding researcher, teacher, and clinician, Dr. Roy played a leading role in the transformation of Ste-Justine University Hospital in Montreal, an internationally-respected child health centre. His research, including infant nutrition, chronic liver disease in children and gastrointestinal and hepatobilliary manifestations of Cystic Fybrosis, has had a major impact on the health of children. Dr. Roy’s ongoing worry that today’s clinicians are becoming increasingly disengaged from scientific research has prompted him to take action at both a national level and with local investigators. Not one to sit back, Dr. Roy continues to work tirelessly to create training programs that are more effective in developing the Clinician Scientist – a key issue for the future of the science and practice of medicine.
