Emmanuelle Careau wins the Université Laval Young Graduate Award

Emmanuelle Careau, a regular researcher at Cirris, is the second recipient of the 2023 Young Graduate Award awarded by the Fondation de l’Université Laval as part of the annual recognition of Les Remarquables. An occupational therapist by training and a graduate of a master’s degree and doctorate in experimental medicine – adaptation/rehabilitation from Université Laval, she has distinguished herself in the fields of interprofessional training and collaborative practices.
Professor at the University since 2013, Emmanuelle Careau was appointed Vice-Dean of Social Responsibility of the Faculty of Medicine in 2017, then Vice-Dean of Professional Development, Pedagogy and Social Responsibility in 2022. Previously, she was Scientific Director of the Collaborative Network on Interprofessional Practices (CNIP) and representative of Quebec and Université Laval on the Pan-Canadian Consortium for Interprofessionalism in Health (CPIS).

The Fondation de l’Université Laval spoke with Ms. Careau during a podcast, where she explains the concept of social responsibility through the care and services offered to the population. “It’s important to train health professionals and do research to ensure that care and services remain relevant to everyone and remain as equitable as we […] lives in the city or whether you live in a region or even in remote areas,” she says.
