Three JGH doctors appointed to McGill as Assistant Professors

Three JGH physicians have been appointed to McGill University’s Department of Medicine as Assistant Professors.

Dr. Maria Fadous

Dr. Fadous, on staff in the hospital’s Division of Cardiology, received her M.D. from the Université de Montréal in 2016. This was followed by a residency in internal medicine and cardiology at McGill; a fellowship in advanced cardiac imaging at the Beth Israel–Deaconess Medical Center at Harvard University in 2023; and a Master’s degree in health professions education at Maastricht University in the Netherlands in 2023.

Dr. Fadous will lead and develop a McGill-wide curriculum in simulation-based training in cardiovascular diseases. She will also lead the residents’ clinic and assume a leadership role in cardiac rehabilitation.

Dr. Lindsey Gerstein

A clinician educator in the JGH Division of General Internal Medicine, Dr. Gerstein earned her M.D. from the Université de Montréal in 2018. After a residency in internal medicine at the JGH, she completed a fellowship in general internal medicine at McGill in 2023.

Earlier this month, Dr. Gerstein received a Master’s degree in medical education from Maastricht University. In June, she will complete a clinical fellowship in perioperative vascular medicine at McMaster University in a hybrid program with the University of British Columbia.

In addition to her clinical work in in-patient and out-patient general internal medicine, Dr. Gerstein will contribute to the CIUSSS’s mission in perioperative medicine and in advancing post-operative care practices. Her research studies include developing training competencies in perioperative medicine.

Dr. Matthew Ades

Dr. Ades, whose McGill appointment takes effect in July, is a clinician educator in the JGH Division of General Internal Medicine. After receiving his M.D. from McGill in 2018, he undertook a residency in internal medicine at the JGH and completed a fellowship in general internal medicine at McGill in 2023.

Dr. Ades is currently pursuing a Master’s degree in health professions education in Ottawa, with a focus on inter-professional crisis resource management. In June, he will also complete a clinical fellowship in vascular medicine at McMaster.

At McGill, Dr. Ades will focus on athero-thromboembolic and polyvascular diseases, with the goal of establishing a vascular medicine and arterial thrombosis clinic.
