The Institut universitaire de réadaptation en déficience physique de Montréal (IURDPM)


In July 2015, the Ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux gave the CIUSSS-Centre-Sud-de-l’Île-de-Montréal a university designation for physical rehabilitation. This led to the creation of the Institut universitaire sur la réadaptation en déficience physique de Montréal (IURDPM).



The Institute’s mandate is to develop research and innovation for all facilities in Quebec’s health network.

It’s often consulted by various public and private partners in the rehabilitation community. It has become a reference for university research and teaching for all of Quebec.

Its university mission is deployed in three centres, with over 50 researchers and more than 250 university students, who collaborate with clinicians and users to advance physical rehabilitation science.

The IURDPM’s researchers are an integral part of the Centre de recherche interdisciplinaire en réadaptation (CRIR).

Each year, the Foundation funds IURDPM research projects that pave the way for greater quality of evidence-based physical rehabilitation.

“Today, I have an exceptional life and, in recognition of that, I’m happy to be involved with the Foundation.”
