Title
The Geographical Origins and Destinations of Medical Graduates in Quebec, 1834-1939
Abstract
By the 1880s, nearly ninety percent of doctors admitted to practice in Quebec trained at one of Quebec's six medical schools. Except for McGill University, all the other medical schools recruited most of their students from within Quebec. McGill recruited from outside Quebec because of the decreasing proportion of Anglophones in the province, and because student fees comprised much of the university's overall operating budget. In the case of both English and French schools, there was at times a considerable emigration of Quebec graduates, reflecting trends among the population in general. The author emphasizes the roles assumed by McGill as part of the network of elite North American universities and that of Université Laval as the supplier of doctors for general practice in rural Quebec.
