He completed 2 years of fellowship at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA), then he was subsequently active in academic medicine and research for 15 years (UdeM), generating numerous scientific publications. For the past 15 years, he has been a gastroenterologist at Pierre-Boucher Hospital, with an interest and expertise in inflammatory diseases (Crohn and ulcerative colitis). He was president of the Association des Gastro-enterologues du Québec (AGEQ) from 2006 to 2011. He is also very active in medical expertise (gastroenterology) in addition to being a consultant for several pharmaceutical companies.
