Congratulations Dr. Bourbeau!

“The greatest achievement someone can consider is seen in the people we train. Real values in what we are doing in medicine, besides taking care of patients, live by being handed down to others,” … “CHEST has given me the privilege over the years to advance best patient outcomes through innovative chest medicine education. However, this would not have been possible without the contribution of all the people working with me, in particular those at the MUHC and McGill University, and my patients who have always been an inspiration.”
