We are pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Isabelle Malhamé to the Division of General Internal Medicine as of June 1, 2019. Dr Malhamé has been appointed to the Attending Staff of the MUHC Department of Medicine, Division of General Internal Medicine, and as an Assistant Professor in the McGill University Department of Medicine.
Dr Malhamé earned her medical degree at the Université de Montréal and subsequently completed her internal medicine residency and general internal medicine R4/R5 training, as well as her MSc in epidemiology, at McGill University. Her thesis explored the relationship between peripartum cardiomyopathy and preeclampsia. Dr Malhamé has just completed a 2-year clinical and research fellowship in obstetric and consultative medicine at the Warren Alpert Medical School, Brown University, Rhode Island. She obtained peer-reviewed funding to study severe cardiovascular maternal morbidity at a population level, and worked on developing tools to better diagnose heart failure in the obstetric setting. She is currently a co-investigator on the DYAMAN study, a Haitian-Canadian collaboration aimed at building capacity in caring for non-communicable diseases in pregnancy in Haiti.
Dr Malhamé will have clinical duties at the MUHC, where she will be involved in teaching students and supervising medical residents. She will continue to develop her clinical and research interests in the field of obstetric medicine within the MUHC Obstetrical Medicine group.
