About the Club
The Addiction Medicine Interest Group seeks to raise awareness about medical issues facing drug users in Montreal and beyond using a non-judgmental, humanistic approach. Through talks, film screenings and site visits, this interest group hopes to educate medical students about the opioid epidemic, opioid replacement therapy, overdose management, motivational interviewing and harm reduction initiatives. The group also seeks to provide a place for medical students to exchange about their own experiences treating or interacting with drug users on the wards. The ultimate goal of this interest group is to prepare future physicians to provide patients struggling with addiction with competent and dignified medical care.
