Pre-travel Clinic (version Francais in the works)
Home page   

The pre-travel clinic is an integral part of the J.D. MacLean Centre for Tropical Diseases at McGill Universityand has been in operation for over 17 years. The juxtaposition of the pre-travel and the tropical disease resources enhances the quality of the pre-travel clinic's risk assessment and recommendations. the Centre is at the Montreal General Hospital, room L10-509.

HOURS: Travelers are seen by appointments that can be made by phoning (514) 934-8462),  FAX. (514) 934-8224. The clinic operates 9:00 to 3:00 daily (Monday to Wednesday) and 9:00-12:00 (Friday)

INFORMATION SOURCES:  Information can also be obtained from the WEB sites listed here. However, WEB site information cannot be as specific and therefore as practical as the information received at a good pre-travel clinic where your detailed travel itinerary can be reviewed with a knowledgeable health care provider. This is particularly important for malaria prophylaxis.
