MONTREAL, July 25, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - The Fédération des médecins résidents du Québec (FMRQ) today unveils its renewed brand image, on the day set aside for welcoming the new cohort of medical residents. Professional, dynamic, in motion and reflecting residents' image, the new logo represents the four medical resident associations that make up the FMRQ combined to form a cross, the universal symbol of medical professionals. The use of curves denotes flexibility and openness.
The FMRQ has also set up a new bilingual Web site (fmrq.qc.ca) that will give medical residents speedy access, via their computers, tablets or smartphones, to a host of helpful information, in particular concerning practice, working conditions, the academic aspects of residency, and several publications. The site will have a section intended for the media, as well.
"Today we are changing far more than our brand image," stated Dr Joseph Dahine, President of the Fédération des médecins résidents du Québec. "We are bringing ourselves closer to all medical residents, who work throughout the province. Our vision is clear," he concluded, "all medical residents are brought together to deliver health care to the entire population of Quebec."
Fédération des médecins résidents du Québec
The Fédération des médecins résidents du Québec is made up of the four medical residents' associations of the medical faculties of the University of Montreal, McGill University, the University of Sherbrooke and Laval University in Quebec City. It has close to 3,600 members, of whom one quarter are headed for a practice in family medicine. The others are pursuing training in one of the 53 other specialties recognized in Quebec. Of that number, 40% are men and 60% are women. The duration of postgraduate education in family medicine is two years, while for specialized physicians it varies from five to six years, depending on the specialty chosen.
