Dr. François Emond completed his medical degree at Laval University in 1997 and his residency in adult neurology in 2002. After a clinical fellowship in multiple sclerosis at The Ottawa Hospital under the direction of Dr. Mark S. Freedman, he joined the neurology department of the CHU of Quebec-Hôpital de l’Enfant-Jésus. Since 2012, he has been director of the multiple sclerosis clinic at the CHU of Quebec and IRDPQ (CIUSSS Capitale-Nationale – François-Charron Centre). In addition to following several hundred patients with multiple sclerosis, he regularly participates in teaching students, externs and residents of the RUIS-Laval network.

Since 2003, Dr. Emond has been involved, as primary local investigator or co-investigator, in multiple clinical trials on the long-term treatment of multiple sclerosis.
