RUIS McGill and the Department of Oncology
RUIS (Réseau universitaire intégré de santé) is the designation for the university-based networks of each of the four faculties of medicine in Québec: McGill University, Université de Montréal, Université de Sherbrooke, and Université Laval. It is designed to give the faculties of medicine a more prominent role in the organization and delivery of tertiary level health care in Québec. The goal of the plan is to improve access to health care by streamlining exchanges between primary care providers and upper level care providers of specialized procedures. RUIS Map (PDF)
Each university RUIS serves a geographic region and is responsible for coordinating the tertiary health care services, research and teaching provided by its faculty of medicine and affiliated teaching hospitals in that area. For McGill, these include the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC), the Jewish General Hospital, St. Mary’s Hospital Center and the Douglas Hospital.
