Why we do research

Research improves practice. That is why Medipsy has a strong research focus. The founders of Medipsy, Professor Drapeau and Professor Fitzpatrick are psychotherapy researchers and professors at McGill University.  Their commitment to research-informed practice is the foundation of training and clinical practice at Medipsy.

Medipsy has two research standards: 

1. To use the best research. Medipsy continuing education and clinical services are informed by current scientific findings.  Our professional staff members are trained to use evidence–based methods in day-to-day practice.

2. To generate research knowledge that improves practice. Medipsy professionals participate in research studies affiliated with university-based networks. At times, clients are invited to participate in research studies.

These standards ensure that professionals receive clinical training that is research-based  and that clients receive services that continually improve.
