Dr. François Constant
Dr. François Constant began his academic career by studying physics at the University of Ottawa but preferring to study the most amazing machine that is the human body, he transferred in medicine after completing 3 out of the 4 years of his bachelor’s degree in physics. He underwent medical training at the University of Sherbrooke and graduated from family medicine in 2012. In his first year of practice as a family physician, doctor Constant felt very unprepared to help patients with chronic pain once he realized how limited were the tools he had been taught in medical school and how widespread chronic pain problems are.
He also became aware that waiting lists for patients needing access to pain treatments were unacceptably long and decided to become part of the solution by dedicating his career to treating chronic pain. This lead him to travel across Ontario and the United States for various types of training on pain treatments given by leading experts.
