DR. SYLVAIN CROTEAU

A passionate emergency room physician who has worked diligently to help medical practice evolve throughout his three-decade career, Dr. Croteau is also a department head, an ultrasound instructor and a project manager for the computerization of medical practice at the Association des médecins d’urgence du Québec (AMUQ). He is the founder of SEKMED, a platform aiming to assist medical communities in the creation, sharing and updating of resources that incorporate proven scientific data and best practices, in addition to supporting their clinical processes, thereby incorporating quality and efficiency. While there are many different paths to achieving a vision, the one Dr. Croteau took is most unusual! In 2011, he traded the stethoscope for oars during a crossing of the Atlantic Ocean, starting from Morocco and going all the way to Barbados!
