David Eidelman, MDCM’79, has been named McGill University’s Dean of Medicine and Vice-Principal (Health Affairs).
Dr. Eidelman, a native of Montreal, is no stranger to the Faculty of Medicine. Besides having completed his medical training at the school, he presently serves as Chair of the University’s Department of Medicine. He is also a leading clinician-scientist at Montreal’s Meakins-Christie Laboratories, where his research focuses on asthma and respiratory disease.
“He knows McGill and he knows Medicine,” said Professor Heather Munroe-Blum, McGill’s Principal and Vice-Chancellor. “He has a simply stellar track record… We all look forward to working with him in building further our Faculty of Medicine and the McGill Academic Health Network as innovators and leaders in medical education, research, and service.”
