Isabelle Gaboury

Family medicine and emergency medicine

University of Sherbrooke


First trained as a biostatistician and a research methodologist, Isabelle Gaboury completed her Master’s degree in 2001. Seeking greater autonomy as a researcher and developing a strong interest for different complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) topics, her thesis work was on interprofessional collaboration between biomedical and CAM health professionals working at Canadian integrative clinics. She obtained a PhD in Population Health from the University of Ottawa in 2009. She completed her postdoctoral training at the University of Calgary between 2008 and 2011, while working on organizational change.

In 2011, she joined the Family Medicine and Emergency Medicine department at the Université de Sherbrooke (Québec), Canada. Her research program is mainly on interprofessional and interorganizational collaboration where primary health care practitioners are involved. In 2018, she received a Junior 2 career scholarship from the Fonds de Recherche Québec – Santé for her work on organizational change and interprofessional collaboration within the stroke care continuum. She is also actively involved with faculty committees on interprofessional education. She teaches various methodology courses (advanced statistics and qualitative methods). She is the author of several book chapters to introduce CAM to nurses and supervises many graduate students on CAM topics including interprofessional collaboration with CAM practitioners. Isabelle Gaboury is the Chair of the Canadian Network on complementary and integrative medicine (2017-2018).
