with Dr Roland Pouchol, anesthesiologist

Born in Nice, France, Dr Pouchol completed his pre-doctoral medical studies at the University Hospital of Nice. He then specialized in anesthesia and intensive care at Caen University Hospital. Intensive care anesthetist since 2011, he has been living in Quebec since 2013.

He has practiced in different establishments and has held multiple positions on the executive committees of physicians, has been head of the medical department in all the establishments where he has practiced, and finally served as deputy director of professional services more recently.

He practices as an anesthetist and in pain medicine, meeting patients in consultation and performing infiltrations.
